An upcoming Facebook Live Q&A will invite the community to listen in and pose health questions to a physician at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso).
In honor of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Navkiran Shokar, M.A., M.P.H., M.D., a physician and clinical researcher in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, will host the session. Dr. Shokar, who specializes in cancer prevention and early detection, will take questions from viewers about all things related to colorectal cancer, including prevention, screening, and treatment.
Dr. Shokar has brought nearly $8 million in grant funding to the El Paso community for cancer detection and early prevention services. She received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Oxford Medical School and completed residencies at Oxford University Hospitals’ Horton General Hospital and St. Joseph Medical Center in Houston, Texas.
Participants are encouraged to submit their questions to Dr. Shokar in advance and RSVP on TTUHSC El Paso’s Facebook Live Q&A on Colorectal Cancer event page.
This Q&A session is part of a new TTUHSC El Paso initiative called The Exam Room. The Exam Room encourages the El Paso community to engage with expert health care professionals at TTUHSC El Paso.
Each month, The Exam Room will hold one or more public Q&As, each focusing on a different health-related topic and highlighting a TTUHSC El Paso health care specialist who has volunteered to answer questions on the subject.
