Join Us at a Patient and Caregiver Symposium

Every year, the MRF hosts educational meetings for melanoma patients, survivors and caregivers in partnership with leading healthcare centers across the United States. At each symposium, participants learn about the latest news in research and treatment, current and upcoming clinical trials, and tools to navigate through their own melanoma diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. In addition to meetings focused on cutaneous melanoma, the MRF also hosts events specifically dedicated to rare subtypes like ocular, pediatric and mucosal melanoma. Most events have both in-person and virtual participation options, allowing patients and caregivers to join the meeting and participate in engaging discussions however they are most comfortable.
