Educating physicians and the public about the importance of early detection of skin cancer is important. To that end I direct Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s annual melanoma/skin cancer screening program. I participate in teaching residents in the field of cutaneous oncology and dermatologic surgery and serve as program director of the Procedural Dermatology/Mohs fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering/Weill Cornell Medical College.
I serve on the American Joint Committee on Cancer for staging of cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network panel for nonmelanoma skin cancer practice guidelines. I am an invited lecturer at national and international dermatology meetings and an author of many of journal articles and book chapters. I am also a peer reviewer for medical journals, including Archives of Dermatology, Dermatologic Surgery Journal, and Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
