Donation Supports Illinois Playground’s Shade Structures


Shade structures can play an important role in minimizing children’s overexposure to the sun, which is essential to preventing skin cancer later in life. Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Amy Brodsky and the Pediatric Sun Protection Foundation, shade structures were purchased and installed at the Jewett Park preschool playground in Deerfield, Illinois.
