Summertime Fun With Water, Sun Requires Vigilance

Published: June 7, 2016

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, from 2005-2014 there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about 10 deaths per day.

Our Dr. Cary Ertz and Dr. George Dittrick shared water and sun safety tips in this LiveWell Nebraska feature.
