The Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation Volunteer Task Force will hold its first meeting of the 2012-13 season Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 7 p.m. in the Palm Beach Post Auditorium. Refreshments will be served. RSVP is required.
The staff and Executive Director Lisa Richman will give a brief presentation regarding melanoma, sun safety protocol and the Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation volunteer program.
The “opportunity to save lives” training is designed to provide information to existing and new volunteers about the foundation, its programs and procedures, and how volunteers can get involved to support and further the foundation’s mission: The prevention and early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma. There are many opportunities for people of all ages who would like to use their skills and abilities.
The Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation was started in 1995 after Richard Kann died at age 44 of a late-detected melanoma. Family and friends formed an organization to help communities nationwide detect and prevent skin cancer at its earliest stage. The mission of the foundation is to educate the community about the prevention and early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma.
