- By Jennifer Nachbur
More than two million cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. annually. A special procedure called Mohs surgery, which offers a high cure rate and minimizes cosmetic issues, will be the focus of an October 2 Community Medical School lecture by Glenn Goldman, M.D., professor of medicine and director of dermatology. Titled “Saving Your Skin: How Mohs Surgery Treats Skin Cancer,” the presentation takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Carpenter Auditorium in the Given Building at the UVM College of Medicine. A Q&A session follows the lecture.
The final Fall 2012 Community Medical School presentation will take place on Tuesday, October 9. Titled “Gut Instincts: Food, Facts and Fiction in Irritable Bowel Disease,” this panel presentation features Jean Harvey-Berino, Ph.D., professor and chair of nutrition and food sciences and associate professor of medicine; Gary Mawe, Ph.D., professor of neurological sciences; and Peter Moses, M.D., professor of medicine and gastroenterologist.
Free parking is available onsite. Registration and additional information are available at 802-847-2886 or the Community Medical School website.
