Kate Hogan State House Advocacy is core to Children's Melanoma Prevention Foundation's (CMPF) mission is to prevent skin cancer. Since the beginning, CMPF has always been involved in community advocacy but more recently we have focused our efforts on advocating for laws that protect children from sun damage and indoor tanning. We hired Maura Flynn, a dermatology nurse specialist, as Advocacy Coordinator to spearhead these efforts and coordinate our activities. In 2016, CMPF successfully advocated for an indoor tanning ban for minors in Massachusetts. CMPF recently signed on to legislation that would allow children to bring sunscreen to school in Massachusetts. CMPF was recognized by the National Council for Skin Cancer Prevention for being the first organization in the nation to petition our governor to proclaim Don’t Fry Day, a national day of skin cancer awareness. CMPF has received multiple citations from state representatives, as well as the Massachusetts Non-profit Network for our efforts in advocacy and education. In 2018, the American Nurses Association (MA) is recognizing Maryellen Maguire-Eisen with their Community Service Award.
