UW-Green Bay senior, cancer survivor uses pageant success to fight melanoma

A UW-Green Bay senior is using her pageant success to raise awareness of melanoma, a disease she battled when she was just 21. Oshkosh native Morgan “Maggie” Hill competed last month in the Miss Wisconsin pageant, under the very personal platform of “Protect the Skin You’re In: Skin Cancer Awareness.” An article published Tuesday (July 17) by OnMilwaukee.com details Hill’s struggles with the disease, including eight surgeries during the course of 14 months. A Human Biology major with a Dietetics emphasis, Hill — a former frequent tanner — has dedicated herself to spreading the word about sun safety and skin health. Here on campus, Hill is the president of the Dietetics Club and will be taking on a leadership role with UWGB Colleges Against Cancer. Great story, click here.
