Bridging Oncology and Primary Care: Skin Cancer

Bridging Oncology and Primary Care: Skin Cancer

May is National Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Skin cancer is the most common cancer, with over 5 million cases diagnosed in the United States each year. As part of skin cancer awareness month, Parkland's Cancer Program hosted the second talk in the new speaker series called "Bridging Oncology and Primary Care" aimed at  providing educational support and continuing to bridge the role of primary care providers in cancer care. Dr. Rajiv Nijhawan provided an in-depth, comprehensive talk on skin cancer symptoms, treatment, and survivorship care.

Dr. Nijhawan is the Director of the Parkland Health skin tumor clinic, and an Associate Professor of Dermatology at UT Southwestern. He is a board-certified dermatologist with fellowship training in Mohs micrographic surgery and he specialized in the surgical management of skin cancers as well as reconstructive surgery.
