Are you passionate about advocacy in the melanoma community? The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is excited to welcome melanoma advocates from across the country for the 9th Annual Advocacy Summit and Hill Day on March 9 - 11, 2019.

This important advocacy event brings you face-to-face with your Members of Congress and their staffs to talk to them about the critical issues facing the melanoma community and the policies that they can help implement change and funding. 


Your Voice Matters!

A strong showing of advocates at this year's Advocacy Summit and Hill Day is more critical than ever. We will be at a crucial point in the legislative process on several key issues impacting the melanoma community. Sharing our story in Washington, DC this March will ensure there is a voice on behalf of the over one million Americans impacted by melanoma!
