A learning experience for all, as the Foundation has the honor and pleasure to have in attendance, Dr. Vidya S. Rajpara, a Physician from Palm Beach Gardens Dermatology and Dan Sheehan, a local resident and melanoma survivor. All have helped to create and coordinate the agenda, along with Executive Director Stacy Ostrau and Dr. John Kinney, for a three-hour event, in which students will receive:

•    Interactive Breakout Sessions and Brainstorming for SAM

Meet New Friends! Earn Community Service! Learn! Have Fun!
