FDA Health Playbook “Don’t Get Burned” Social Media Toolkit
Not all sunscreens are created equal. The information included in these new PSAs from the FDA will help consumers decide how to buy and use sunscreen and allow them to more effectively protect themselves and their families from sun damage. Consumers should use broad-spectrum sunscreens with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to protect against harmful ultraviolet A and B rays.
As the latest installment in the FDA Health Playbook series, the PSAs feature NFL Hall of Fame Defensive Back Darrell Green, who participates in the “Don’t Get Burned” Sunscreen Challenge with 2018 NCAA Lacrosse Champion Kristen Gaudian and George Mason University Basketball Forward Josh Oduro. The PSAs remind viewers that broad-spectrum sunscreen is a “winning play” every time and encourage viewers to visit fda.gov/healthplaybook to learn more about sunscreen and other sun protection measures.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Health Playbook is a health series designed to be fun, informative, and appealing to a broad, sports-minded audience. The series features NFL Hall of Famers and other sports league champions relaying health and wellness information through sports metaphors and dramatizations.
