Due to ongoing restrictions related to COVID-19, the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is excited to host the 2020 Pediatric Melanoma Summit for young melanoma patients and their families virtually this year. The summit will provide educational and support resources for this growing population. Attendance is FREE but registration is requested. We ask that you register by September 10, 2020 so we can send you a “Virtual Summit Kit” with everything you’ll need for the summit in time for the event.
We have a number of sessions lined up for the summit including a live Q&A session with doctors, kid’s activities, a teen Zoom chat and more! Check out the calendar below to see some of the live events we will be hosting. Zoom meeting information will be sent out the week of the event. The “Virtual Summit Kit” will also include materials needed for the glow in the dark activities, the Crowns Against Cancer activity and the glow in the dark bingo.
During this week we will be releasing pre-recorded content, along with some live sessions, that you can view at your convenience. Below is a table that explains what day they will be released along with speakers and topics.
As many of you may know, September is Pediatric Melanoma Awareness Month. Some of our courageous pediatric patients, caregivers, families and survivors will share their stories and experiences with melanoma throughout the month.
