UCLA Health, sunscreen company BrightGuard and the nonprofit organization IMPACT Melanoma last week unveiled the first of dozens of new sun-safety stations that will dispense free sunscreen to the public at Los Angeles-area beaches.
UCLA alumnus Sinjin Smith, whose legendary beach volleyball career spanned more than 25 years, joined the kickoff and spoke about the importance of sun protection.
