MIF Staff


Catherine M. Poole
President and Founder

Catherine Poole, a 27 year melanoma survivor and patient advocate, founded MIF to provide the support and outreach that was so difficult to find during her own diagnosis and treatment. Poole is the author of Melanoma Prevention, Detection and Treatment, published by Yale University Press, revised in 2005. Her co-author is Dr. DuPont Guerry, former Director of the Melanoma Program at UPenn and world renowned melanoma expert. More recently, Melanoma: Not Just Skin Cancer was published by Poole and can be found on Amazon here.
