Did the last few days get really hot all of a sudden? WE ACT offers some tips for staying cool.
Beat the Heat
During the summer months everyone wants to have a little fun in the sun. Beach trips, picnics, sports, and other activities can be enjoyable if you and your family take the proper precautions to beat the summer heat. Even activities that are not recreational but leave you in the heat (both indoor and outdoor) for any period of time put you at risk for succumbing to a heat-related illness. In our recently published Northern Manhattan CARE Collaborative Newsletter, WE ACT offers some tips for staying cool (on page 4).
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
