NU SKIN CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS AT ANNUAL FORCE FOR GOOD DAY
PROVO, Utah—June 20, 2016—Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. is celebrating 20 years of being a force for good by participating in a number of humanitarian projects focused on improving the lives of children as part of the company’s 13th annual Force for Good Day.
