Welcome to the 2018 New Zealand Melanoma Summit

Kia ora koutou

We are delighted to invite you to attend the 2018 New Zealand Melanoma Summit from 2 – 3 November 2018 at the Cordis Hotel, Auckland.

This event is being organised by the Melanoma Network of New Zealand Incorporated (MelNet) with support from the Health Promotion Agency (HPA).

New Zealand continues to have one of the highest incidence rates of melanoma in the world. By attending the 2018 New Zealand Melanoma Summit you will be joining over 200 health professionals who are passionate about reducing the incidence and impact of melanoma in New Zealand. 

One of the strengths of this Summit is that it is multi-disciplinary. We can work together to influence the way we prevent, detect and treat this disease. There is nothing else to attend of similar calibre." - Attendee of 2015 Melanoma Summit 

The fifth event of its kind, the 2018 New Zealand Melanoma Summit will examine and discuss recent developments in melanoma control and identify priorities for action for New Zealand. It will provide you an opportunity to exchange ideas and practices, and develop friendships and professional linkages with other delegates and agencies. 

The Summit programme will feature a diverse range of experts recognised internationally for their contribution to melanoma control. There will be engaging presentations, interactive panel discussions as well as workshops on prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research. 

We look forward to meeting you in November.
