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

In addition to educational events, we also have a wide variety of educational materials, such as brochures, posters, and handouts perfect for fundraisers, doctors’ offices, schools and health fairs. See our list of educational materials.

Conferences, Webinars and Teleconferences

Our in-person conferences, virtual webinars and teleconferences are dedicated to melanoma patients and the people who support them. All educational events feature leading melanoma scientists, researchers and physicians and are aimed at bringing participants the most current information on melanoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment. 

If you cannot attend an event, please note that many of the events are recorded and uploaded 1-2 weeks after occurring. View our past webinars and educational videos.
