Hello Friends of Melanoma Know More,
As a result of the current COVID-19 situation in our country and beyond,
Melanoma Know More
has made the challenging decision to postpone all face-to-face meetings and activities until June 1st. This includes our
monthly skin cancer screening clinics
, which is in response to our partner hospital systems making the difficult decision to put nonessential business on pause to focus efforts and resources on COVID-19. Additionally, this also includes our
in schools and businesses as well as
community and corporate health fairs
Early detection and prevention of melanoma efforts must continue despite what is going on in our world. We encourage you to perform monthly self exams.
to learn how to perform a self exam provided by our friends at the American Academy of Dermatology. Additionally,
to learn more about the ABCDE’s of melanoma. If you have something that is suspicious during this time, please
to locate a dermatologist in your area.
Please know, our organizational mission remains unchanged during this time. We may just have to adjust our sails a bit. We will continue our efforts to raise awareness about melanoma and our mission virtually. Please stay tuned to our social media outlets and our
for current information.
Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the mission of Melanoma Know More.
