Transplant News

If you missed the wonderful presentation on skin cancer by Dr. Sherrif Ibrahim at the May membership meeting, you can view the full set of presentation slides here. Given the high incidence of skin cancer among transplant recipients, we encourage you to review these slides as a source of useful information to minimize the threat of skin cancer as you meet the challenges of life after transplant.
