Doylestown Health is committed to keeping our community healthy through education and outreach. Here is a recap of our efforts in the community this past month.

Brightening Awareness of UV Rays

More than 200 children from the Central Bucks Family YMCA and Vita Education Services learned how to "summer" safely in the sun! They learned about hydration, water safety, and sunscreen, and also crafted UV bead color-changing bracelets to "brighten" awareness of the sun's rays!

Plate the Rainbow

Kids at the Horsham and Warminster Libraries can write the "book" on healthy eating. Children explored a rainbow of possibilities for a healthy diet through interactive games and discussion!
