Block the Blaze is the Houston chapter of the national John Wayne Cancer Foundation based in California. We focus on raising awareness for melanoma, including the causes, incidence and at-home detection, in hopes of reducing melanoma incidence over time. We are dedicated to service learning and training medical students to be certified melanoma educators to provide high quality education for K-12 students within the greater Houston area and beyond. We especially want to target underserved communities and are expanding to integrate social determinants of health into our curriculum and education program.
Student Leaders: Dina Zamil and Shelly Fu
