Student Snapshot: Allie Measel - Pediatric Dermatology


Liberty High School senior Allie Measel is studying Pediatric Dermatology and for her final product is focusing on melanoma awareness. Allie had the opportunity to help coordinate and volunteer for the Aim at Melanoma Foundation’s annual Aim for the Cure Melanoma Walk / Fun Run. She got to spread her knowledge to people attending the event including melanoma survivors and family members and friends of melanoma patients. Allie also got to present her final product to over hundreds of people, helping answer many of the questions most people have about tanning and melanoma.

At the start, people could walk up to the main information tent she was hosting and ask questions about sunscreen, UV rays, safe ways to maintain your skin, and most importantly, melanoma. There were over 861 registrants and more than $58,800 Donations received prior to event.
