I wanted to share a few opportunities for you to get involved in the fight against melanoma!
The first is with our partners at OncoSec. OncoSec is looking for cutaneous melanoma patients or caregivers, who have participated in a clinical trial, to share their stories and experiences. They are looking for people in the following cities/areas: Northeast/Boston, Northern New York, New Jersey, San Diego, Philadelphia, Houston and Chicago. The goal of the media tour is to increase awareness of and participation in clinical trials. If you are interested in the virtual media tour, please email my colleague, Lorrie Miley, at [email protected].
The second is with our partners at Pfizer. Pfizer is hosting a virtual advisory board on Friday, August 21, 2020 from 4-5:30pm ET. They are looking for cutaneous melanoma patients and caregivers to participate in a virtual discussion so Pfizer can learn more about the general patient experience. I will moderate. Participants can live anywhere in the U.S. After the advisory board is held, all participants will be given a $25 gift card for their time. In an effort to have a diverse advisory board, all interested patients and caregivers should fill out this survey ASAP:
If you have any questions about these opportunities, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected]. As always, we thank you for your time and committment to helping us better the melanoma community.
