DermTech’s donations will help support events, educational content and programs to amplify a variety of voices who are joining our fight to end melanoma deaths.

In honor of Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month, DermTech is launching its Stickit2Melanoma campaign, urging the public to get proactive about skin exams.

To kick off the campaign, DermTech is pledging up to $1 million over the next four years to raise awareness about the importance of skin exams and making them accessible to everyone.

For every pledge to schedule a skin exam with a clinician, DermTech will also make a $5 donation to its nonprofit partner organizations focused on skin health. DermTech believes it can help stop deaths from melanoma and is steadfast in fulfilling this goal.

John Dobak, M.D., chief executive officer of DermTech said, “DermTech is fervently committed to reducing melanoma deaths through early detection, and this pledge is just the start to a bigger movement we are hoping to inspire. The technology and science to reduce melanoma deaths through early and accurate detection is here, so no one should ever have to die from this cancer. To make this possible, we’re calling on everyone–dermatologists and patients alike–to galvanize their communities to join our pledge today.”
