Sun Safety Tips

The warmer weather and sunshine are finally here!  Most of us like to work or enjoy outdoor activities on a sunny day, but too much sun can be harmful.  Unprotected skin can be damaged in as little as 15 minutes of sun exposure.  You can protect yourself and still have fun in the sun.  Before you head outdoors, follow these sun safety tips by Health Canada:

  • Cover up.  Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts, pants, and a wide-brimmed hat made from breathable fabric.  When you buy sunglasses, make sure they provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Limit your time in the sun.  Keep out of the sun and heat between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.  When your shadow is shorter than you, the sun is very strong.  Look for places with lots of shade, like a park with big trees, partial roofs, awnings, umbrellas or gazebo tents.  Always take an umbrella to the beach.

Brock CHC In Brief

Building a Healthier Community

Brock Community Health Centre (Brock CHC) is a community health service for residents of Brock Township and surrounding areas, an area in Ontario where, by all accounts, there has been an inadequate range of primary health services available for many years.  Community advocacy by a committed group of local residents resulted in the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care providing funding for a community health centre for Brock Township residents in late 2007.

Brock CHC is non-profit organization, registered in Ontario, governed by a Board of Directors, representing the communities of Brock Township and surrounding areas.  The Board is elected annually from the organization’s membership.  Brock CHC’s Letters Patent were issued in 2002.

Brock Community Health Centre

Brock Community Health Centre (Brock CHC) assists individuals, families and community organizations to identify local health issues and to develop and implement programs that address these needs.

We believe that good health means more than not being ill.  It means access to affordable housing and adequate food, opportunities for education and employment with a living wage and residing in an environment that is clean and safe.

We welcome community members to join and participate with us as we strive to improve the health of our community.

Community Health Services Integration

Brock Community Health Centre is one of ten local community health services (CHS) organizations in Durham Region which have developed an integration plan to improve access for local residents and ensure that CHS providers — their staff, volunteers and board members — are ready to better address the community health services needs of a growing population.
