A spokesperson said, “Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre is proud to announce an upcoming event dedicated to raising awareness about melanoma and skin cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Titled “Cancer Talks: Melanoma and Skin Cancer,” this free public presentation aims to empower the Bermuda community with crucial knowledge and insights.

“The highlight of the event will be a keynote address by Dr Hillary Tsibris, MD, Associate Physician in the Center for Melanoma Oncology at Dana Farber Cancer Center and Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School. Dr Tsibris brings a wealth of expertise and will share the latest advancements in skin cancer research, emphasizing the significance of prevention strategies, early detection, and effective treatment options.”

According to Dr Tsibris, “Prevention and early skin cancer diagnoses are critical for saving lives. If we can improve awareness of the key features of melanoma, we can detect these tumours at an early, curable stage.” Her presentation promises to offer invaluable insights that can potentially save lives.

The spokesperson said, “In addition to Dr Tsibris’s presentation, Azuree Williams, Event & Programme Manager at Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, will provide a comprehensive overview of the statistical prevalence of skin cancer in Bermuda.
