Alison Duncan is a Consultant Dermatologist at Integra Healthcare.
She grew up in Barbados and completed her medical training at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. Her dermatology training commenced in the United Kingdom when she obtained a Masters in Dermatology from the St John’s Institute of Dermatology in London. She subsequently completed her registrar training in Liverpool with her first Consultant appointment at the Royal Preston and Chorley Teaching Hospitals Trust in 2008.
As the Cayman Islands are wonderfully blessed with a wealth of sunshine, unfortunately, in some skin types the rate of skin cancer is high. Therefore, since arriving to the Cayman Islands in 2015 she has been part of the Educational Committee of the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and has given educational talks about sun awareness and skin cancer prevention.
She is passionate about the importance of skin cancer prevention and early skin cancer detection as she has seen firsthand how early detection can save lives.
She recognises the significant impact that a serious skin cancer diagnosis can have on an individual and their loved ones.
She endeavours to support the work of the Cayman Islands Cancer Society for all cancers, supporting, aiding and educating the community.
When not at work you will find her on the beach in an UPF swimsuit, sun hat and shades with a large bottle of SPF 50 broad spectrum sunscreen by her side.
