The Melanoma Education Foundation saves lives by promoting greater awareness of melanoma and the importance of early detection by self-examination of the skin. Services are delivered three ways:

- Educating high school and middle school wellness teachers about melanoma and

 providing them with free lessons to educate their students in single class sessions.

 At last count over 1700 schools in all 50 states were using our lessons.

- Maintaining and continuously updating two educational web sites, skincheck.org    for the general public and melanomaeducation.net for health educators.

- Conducting  regional outreach talks and facial sun damage screenings.
