Skin cancer rates have continued to increase in the United States, despite most people knowing that they should wear a hat, use sunscreen and avoid indoor tanning. The American Cancer Society projects there will be 2,780 new cases and 290 deaths due to melanoma in Michigan in 2017; however, Dr. Brittany Carter-Snell says she’s devoted to help combat it at her new location in Detroit.
Dr. Carter-Snell, a board-certified physician, is dually trained in internal medicine and dermatology. She received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and her medical doctorate from Michigan State University. She went on to Ohio University and completed a combined internal medicine-dermatology residency.
