Under the auspices of the Croatian Academy of Medical Sciences

Melanoma patients in Central and Eastern Europe 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.

MPNCEE2017 is therefore a conference

  • with particular attention to the challenges that Melanoma patients living in Central and Eastern Europe face, in particular access to innovative treatments
  • to provide a deeper understanding of the underlying factors and economic realities
  • looking for constructive solutions for CEE 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, please apply to join us in Zagreb!

Who should apply?
