Hope, challenges and opportunities.

21st- 23rd September 2018 tbc



New treatments are for the first time giving hope to Melanoma patients everywhere.

However, patients in Central and Eastern Europe continue to face particular challenges concerning the detection and treatment of Melanoma.

We as a network of European Melanoma patients consider it unacceptable that survival chances of Melanoma patients differ to such a degree within Europe. 

MPNCEE2018 will therefore address

  • what is considered the latest standard of care in Melanoma
  • what are the challenges specific to CEE
  • but also: what are the opportunities and good examples in the region that could make a real difference to all Melanoma patients.

So if you are a European Melanoma patient, carer or advocate concerned, care about the topic as much as we do, understand and speak English well enough to follow a conference and are willing to put in the effort, have a look at last year's program and block the date in your calendar!
