Episode 167 – Skin Lesions in People of Color Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie
Skin Lesions in People of Color – On Saturday, July 29, Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie spoke with Andrew Alexis, MD, MPH about skin lesions in people of color. Common conditions of the skin, hair, and nails vary in appearance in people of color from light skinned people. In addition, people of all colors are at risk for skin cancer, but because they occur less commonly in people of color, there is less emphasis on suspicion of skin cancer and the cancers are more often found at an advanced stage with a lower survival rate.

Moved by the love for her own one-year old daughter, Amy answered the call to work with birth parents who were considering parenting or adoption. Her work continues with Catholic Social Services where she has spent over 35 years, touching the lives of thousands of God’s neediest children.
