Molloy Nursing in the News
Congratulations to Dr. Victoria Siegel New York Academy of Medicine Fellow
After many years of studying skin cancer in our own local communities, Dr. Siegel continues to share her expertise globally. She has just returned from Ireland where she is now
conducting international research at Dundalk Institute of Technology. She studied the nursing and agricultural student's knowledge of skin cancer and sun protective behaviors using a skin analyzer machine, which demonstrates to the participants the sun damage to their faces. This method assists in personalizing the risk of unprotected sun exposure and assists in changing behavior. After analysis, Dr. Siegel will compare the United States student data to that of the Ireland students.
Most importantly, Dr. Siegel's research is being translated in hospitals today - Winthrop University Hospital has now added skin cancer assessment and education to their electronic medical record. This is a significant step as now all admitted patients admitted will undergo this screening and education. Dr. Siegel is now working with other institutions to enable them to add this document to their electronic medical records.
Dr. Siegel works with the Mollie Biggane Melanoma Foundation, which was started by the Biggane family after they lost their 20 year old daughter to melanoma. She will be inducted into the New York Academy of Medicine as a Fellow this month.
