Many medical professionals are already taking action. Amy Forman Taub, MD, and Melanie D. Palm, MD, MBA, have each created successful fundraising events that promote their practices while raising funds for the Foundation. Both events have grown year-after-year, as each doctor finds new and exciting ways to improve upon their previous efforts.

Skin for Life: The combination of fashion and skin cancer awareness was the impetus behind Dr. Amy Forman Taub's Skin for Life event. Taking place in Lincolnshire Illinois, the event boasts a fashion show highlighting local designers, a silent auction, along with vendor exhibits where guests sampled the latest in beauty treatments, products, and received mini-makeovers. Attendance has grown to over 250 individuals and the event is regularly featured in the Chicago Sun-Times' Splash Magazine along with other media outlets.

SolSearch: Dr. Melanie Palm's SolSearch event has expanded into a full weekend of activities including a cocktail party and community shopping experience. Taking place in the Beachwalk Center of Solana Beach California, SolSearch builds client relationships by including free full-body skin exams and discounted treatment procedures at the Art of Skin MD practice. The event has grown to include over 40 local sponsors who uniquely participate by providing special deals and services that support the fundraising efforts of the event.
