As founder and CEO of melanoma WA, Clinton Heal is dedicated to increasing awareness in the WA community about the risks of sun exposure, and especially awareness about the deadly form of skin cancer melanoma. MelanomaWA provides an informative website and support network for those that are living with melanoma. Mr Heal says that once the website was launched people started to contact him about support meetings, so these started in October of 2008. MelanomaWA has been expanding ever since. In January of 2010, melanomaWA became an incorporated association and a board was nominated to take control. Mr Heal, who has a masters degree of business administration and a bachelor of medical imaging science, was made CEO and holds the position today. Mr Heal recently received the WA Young Australian of the Year for 2011 for his work with MelanomaWA.
