Sun Bus Services
Free Skin Exams
Free Sunscreen Samples
Yearly skin checks by your dermatologist are recommended; however, these annual screenings are not feasible for all. The Sun Bus is a mobile clinic with 2 patients exam rooms outfitted to administer free skin checks to Coloradans with the help of local dermatologists and skin health providers.
Thanks to our primary sponsor, EltaMD, the Sun Bus is able to provide FREE EltaMD sunscreen to the public at all events it attends. Patrons can also purchase their own EltaMD skincare product through the Sun Bus along with items from Sunday Crew UV Clothing and the Wallaroo Hat Company.
Skin Cancer & Sun Safety Education
The Sun Bus is outfitted with sophisticated cameras to provide live educational demonstrations of how the sun damages skin and how sunscreen protects us from these dangerous rays. These personalized demonstrations are free to all who visit the Sun Bus at events, including all displayed sun safety and skin cancer literature.
