Learn more about our joint initiatives with CureOM (an initiative of Melanoma Research Foundation, U.S.), Ocumel UK, Ocumel Ireland, and AOMA in Australia.  Together we share global best practices and research emerging from all over so that we can get this information to Canadian patients and caregivers touched by OM.

In November 2020 we joined these groups for the 9th Annual Eyes on a Cure: Ocular Melanoma Patient and Caregiver Symposium.  CureOM, in partnership with Ocumel Canada, OcuMel UK, Ocumel Ireland and the Australasian Ocular Melanoma Alliance we were able to bring over 50 sessions from across the globe that included adjuvant therapy, COVID-19 and OM, clinical trials, OM research updates, accepting your new normal, scanxiety, a registry update and more.
