Chapter News:

On September 13, 2015, the Tri-State Chapter of the Dermatology Nurses' Association (DNA) partnered with Pennsylvania Dermatology Physician Assistants (PDPA) Chapter of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SDPA) to provide an educational table at the 3rd annual Miles for Moody Melanoma Walk in Lansdale, PA. Joe Moody was a beloved husband and father of three (ages 2-11) when he was taken away by melanoma at the young age of 43. Joe was a teacher at Central Bucks South High School and an active coach in the Montgomery Township youth athletic leagues. He was well respected by friends, colleagues, family and students alike. He fought this terrible disease with dignity, strength and grace before finally succumbing on May 7, 2012. The Joe Moody Foundation was formed in 2013 with three objectives in mind:

  • To give back to the community that so graciously took care of Joe and his family through annual scholarship programs at Central Bucks South High School and North Penn High School
  • To help other young families on their cancer journey by contributing to For Pete’s Sake cancer respite organization
  • To help fund melanoma research at the Abramson Cancer Center at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania

Approximately, 250 people participated. There were 35 skin checks performed in a blue and white striped private cabana by a licensed and insured provider. The crowd stopped by the tables asking questions, taking sunscreen samples and melanoma brochures provided by DermPath. Aerolase lasers graciously donated toward the charity. We are looking forward to next year and taking steps towards preventing melanoma. Thank you all who came out in support!
