DermTech announced it is bringing back its #Stickit2Melanoma campaign in support of melanoma and skin cancer awareness month. For every pledge to schedule a skin exam, DermTech donates $5 to its skin health-focused nonprofit organizations. The campaign originated last year, with the company donating $250,000 and pledging up to $1 million over the next four years.

Popular influencers who have experience with melanoma are partnering with DermTech for the #Stickit2Melanoma campaign to bring heightened awareness to melanoma and the importance of skin checks. Melanoma is among the most common types of cancer in the United States.
John Dobak, M.D., CEO of DermTech, said, “Improving access to early, reliable melanoma detection is at the heart of our mission. We know the most effective way to help eliminate melanoma deaths is to identify the disease early. Through the #Stickit2Melanoma campaign, we are inspiring people to unite during melanoma awareness month and take the skin exam pledge. Melanoma doesn’t discriminate, and by understanding the risks and how to take proper precautions, we can save lives.”
