Dr.Maral Skelsey discusses the "Bob Marley Phenomenon," melanoma and people of color
WASHINGTON (ABC 7) —
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. About one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in his or her lifetime. Late and misdiagnosis can lead to unsatisfactory outcomes and even death due, especially in people of color. Some reasons: our next guests are hoping to help change that one preventative step at a time! GMW welcomed, Dr. Maral Skelsey, Skin Cancer Specialist & Founding Director, Dermatologic Surgery Center of Washington and one of her melanoma patients Erica Thomas.
