Join us Thursday, March 6th, 2014 for the annual MRF Legislative Hill Day! This is a great opportunity to meet with your members of Congress face-to-face to urge them to support increased funding for melanoma research and tanning bed reclassification.

This day long event will begin with a legislative briefing, followed by meetings with your state legislators. The MRF will assist in setting up these meetings for you. With keen competition for federal dollars, it's critical we make a strong showing to represent the interests of the melanoma community. 

For more information about this FREE event, contact Mary Antonucci, National Director of Volunteer Services, at volunteer@melanoma.org.

Can’t make it to Washington, D.C.? Ask Mary how you can participate virtually!
