To the Editor The research letter “Comparison of Regional and State Differences in Melanoma Rates in the United States: 2003 vs 2013”1 was insightful and valuable. In speculating about the decline in New England melanoma incidence and death rates during the 10-year period, the authors attributed the results to skin cancer prevention programs and specifically cited the influence of the Melanoma Foundation of New England (MFNE).
