Learning by Doing
Sometimes the only way you learn something is by doing it. Sounds simple enough, but sometimes doing it can get a long way from simple. Take a Nevus Conference, for instance.

Grassroots Fundraiser Campaign
Friends of Gavin Michael Bailey, who died in 2013 at the age of 1 from complications of Neurocutaneous Melanocytosis, are challenging the people of Nevus Outreach to raise $20,000 by the end of February 2014. Each dollar raised will be matched, up to a total of $20,000, resulting in a fund of $40,000. (more)
