Melanoma Monday helps identify cancer when easily treatable

Dermatologists at Ark-La-Tex Dermatology, part of the Willis-Knighton Physician Network, have volunteered their time to participate in Melanoma Monday on May 2.

As members of the American Academy of Dermatology the physicians commit to this program each year to promote the importance of early detection of skin cancer. Offering the screenings in Bossier City and Shreveport will be Josephine Futrell, MD, PhD; Sarah Glorioso, MD, and Sarah Baker, MD. The screening involves a brief visual check with the physician. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but it can be effectively treated when identified at an early stage.

Screenings in the Ark-La-Tex Dermatology’s Bossier City Office, 2300 Hospital Drive, Suite 400, will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 to 5 p.m.

Screenings in their Shreveport office, 1811 East Bert Kouns Industrial Loop, Suite 160, will be offered from 7:40 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Appointments are required for this screening and can be scheduled by visiting the Willis-Knighton website, wkhs.com.  Appointments may also be scheduled by calling the Willis-Knighton Community Education helpline, (318) 212-8225.
