Working together bringing you the latest in melanoma education.
If you attended Fieldays at Mystery Creek this year, you may have seen that FMG launched a new partnership with Melanoma New Zealand, whose goal is to prevent avoidable deaths and suffering caused by melanoma.
New Zealand has the highest rate of melanoma in the world and those who work outside are exposed to 10 times the UV light as those who work indoors. Our role in this partnership is to help share Melanoma New Zealand's important messages.
“Our farmers and growers are among the most at risk of melanoma in the world due to New Zealand’s UV radiation intensity. Supporting them to remain well so that they can continue to grow and prosper is very important us," says FMG Chief Client Officer, Andrea Brunner.
Be summer-ready on FMG
As the rural partner of Melanoma New Zealand we’re excited to bring you an online education programme, which Melanoma New Zealand developed last year during lockdown when they couldn’t get out and about to provide face-to face courses. They were able to quickly adapt to ensure New Zealanders still had access to the right information on being sun smart and to keep themselves and their families safe from melanoma.
As an FMG client you can access this education for free. Simply visit www.fmg.co.nz/melanoma to register.
You'll receive an email with a link taking you directly to the Melanoma New Zealand education programme. Simply create a login and you’re away.
