This year's 7th Annual Focus on Melanoma conference was a full day symposium designed to address the personal and medical issues facing those at risk for melanoma, survivors of melanoma, their loved ones, and caregivers. This year's conference was intended to help those at risk and survivors of melanoma become active participants in their care through both the treatment and emotional journey.
Our experts, who are experts in their field of dermatology, surgical oncology and medical oncology, for melanoma discussed the critical issues for those who are at risk, newly diagnosed, finishing treatment, and long-term survivors, as well as those with advanced melanoma. Critical information about prevention, genetics, risk assessment, early detection, current and future treatment choices, coping skills, as well as providing hope to face the challenges that lay ahead was provided. Our experts discussed the latest information on melanoma basic and translational research with an emphasis on promising clinical trials.
