Education Institute



As part of the MRF’s Education Institute we have developed education and advocacy opportunities to better serve the melanoma community. Whether it’s to take the annual Certified Melanoma Educator course, the Advocacy 101 course, or a course on participation in melanoma research, the MRF aims to be your one-stop-shop for melanoma education and advocacy!

Available Courses

Certified Melanoma Educator Course

This course was developed in 2015 to encourage the MRF’s volunteers and advocates to take their commitment to melanoma awareness and education a step further, helping them become armed and confident with accurate messages and information. Since it’s launch, over 1,300 volunteers have taken the course!

This course was developed to better prepare volunteers on what it means to serve as a melanoma advocate and ways to influence policy.

This course was developed to provide an introductory-level civics refresher on the steps required for making a bill into a law.
