This volunteer service is part of a 3-year community outreach campaign, Play Safe in the Sun, presented by WDS in collaborative partnership with L'Oreal USA. The program draws from the organization's 1,600 members to promote sun safety among outdoor sports enthusiasts. Michel McDonald, MD (Nashville, TN) and Adrienne Stewart, MD (Denver, CO) lead the WDS Service Committee, which oversees this national, award-winning campaign.
