Join us March 7th, 8th and 9th for the annual MRF Advocacy Summit & 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 event will begin with a comprehensive training, culminating in 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.
