MoleMapper™ rack card

MoleMapper™ iPhone application

MoleMapper™ is an iPhone application that allows users to more accurately track their skin (moles, lesions, etc...) Changes in a mole's appearance (size, shape, or color) over time can indicate a cancerous lesion, so it is important to know what is normal for your skin and be able to monitor for changes over time. 

Using MoleMapper™, users can photograph, map, and measure their moles over time, allowing users to detect potentially harmful changes in their skin. Users can also choose to participate in research, as well as share these photos with their providers in clinic visits if they find something of concern.

Use the MoleMapper™ Rack Card to share with friends, family, or community members that have iPhones.

War on Melanoma™ brochure

War on Melanoma™ brochure

We need to take decisive action. We need to enhance awareness. We need to end melanoma.

The War on Melanoma™ brochure outlines how to join the Melanoma Community Registry, which is cohort, or group of people interested in the prevention, detection, and treatment of this serious disease. With this group of engaged participants, studies enroll more quickly, education is spread more rapidly and public policy is changed more effectively.

Members of the Melanoma Community Registry will be informed of research opportunities, melanoma-related events, opportunities to volunteer, and more. Join us in fighting in the War on Melanoma™, and spread the word to your communities!
