The White Aisle Foundation participated in, and helped organize and facilitate the Third Annual Meeting of the Melanoma Action Coalition on February 28 and March 1, 2018.
The meeting featured updates about MAC's 2017 accomplishments as well as presentations by Joan Russo, Chief Development Officer at the Melanoma Research Alliance, Don Uselmann, President of MDSolar Sciences, Cody Barnett, MRA's Communications Director, and several MAC members.
MAC members also had the opportunity to attend a Patient and Foundation Forum, where we learned about the most recent breakthroughs in melanoma research, strategies for melanoma prevention, and new resources for those diagnosed with melanoma, including a new, user-friendly Clinical Trial Navigator and a moderated online community.
We also had the opportunity to network and share with each other, and to forge new friendships and alliances with melanoma patients, survivors, and advocates. We left feeling energized, committed, and looking forward to our next opportunity to meet at our Fall Conference in Philadelphia.
