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.

Listen to an audio interview on skin cancer in Vermont, Mohs surgery and other treatment options featuring Goldman. Read about Fletcher Allen's new Mohs surgery accreditation.

The final Fall 2012 Community Medical School presentation will take place on Tuesday, October 9.
