Dr. Weishar believes in sharing her medical knowledge with people in need by helping her surrounding communities, as well as those afar. She recently led a hike with the help of her team in Upper Dublin, Pennsylvania, to raise awareness and funds for skin cancer prevention and early detection services and programs. The hike raised $10,000, all of which was donated to further support research into skin cancer. This campaign was created by the American Academy of Dermatology (ADD)
and Skin Cancer Take a Hike, who congratulated Springhouse Dermatology for raising the most money of any local team.Moreover, in May 2013, Dr. Weishar went to Kenya
to treat patients at the Baraka Health Clinic through the NGO ME to We
. Many of the patients at the clinic suffered from conditions that are the primary results of the living conditions in rural Kenya and tribal lifestyle. Some of the most common conditions she saw during her time there were river blindness, black fly bites, and elephantiasis. Due to the remoteness of the location, Dr. Weishar and the team of volunteers relied on textbooks and each other’s expert knowledge to diagnose and treat patients.
