Founder and CEO of Miiskin Jon Friis discusses the partnership between the Skin Cancer Foundation and Miiskin for Skin Cancer Awareness Month to remind people to perform self-skin exams. Miiskin is a digital health platform supported by the dermatological community as a tool to help track skin changes.
Jon Friis is the founder and CEO of Miiskin, a skin tracking app he created out of the desire to better help his partner navigate her high risk for skin cancer. Knowing that paper-based skin mapping was outdated and hard to routinize, Jon turned to digital health technologies to bring individual and full-body skin mapping to a place where users can easily make self-examinations a part of their health routine. Jon leads a team of technologists and clinical advisory team members while fulfilling his dream of ending skin cancer by 2040. Jon holds a Masters of Science from the University of Copenhagen.
