Educational Programs

The MRF has a robust education program aimed at educating patients and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma, as well as increasing overall awareness of the disease.

Educational Materials

We offer a wide variety of educational materials you can use at fundraisers, doctors' offices, schools and health fairs.

Conferences, Webinars and Teleconferences

Each year, the MRF supports approximately 10 patient-focused educational symposia throughout the U.S. attended by nearly 1,400 people touched by melanoma. Our upcoming educational events are below. Learn from leading melanoma experts who aim to bring participants the most current information on melanoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
