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

However, hope is not evenly distributed as patients in Central and Eastern Europe

continue to struggle to access effective prevention, early detection and effective treatments.

We as a network of European Melanoma patients consider it unacceptable that survival chances of Melanoma patients differ to such a degree within Europe, so join us in Bucharest for a weekend of Melanoma updates and discussion on how to improve the situation for Melanoma patients in the region!

MPNCEE2018 will address

  • what is considered the latest standard of care in Melanoma from a scientific point of view
  • 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 come back as registration will open at the beginning of July!
