Dr. Alan Greenspan
Alan Greenspan is a dermatologist, practicing close to 40 years in the Wall Street area. He received his undergraduate and medical degree from Northwestern University, and did his dermatology residency at New York University. Alan is a Clinical Assistant Professor at NYU Department of Dermatology and has an ongoing teaching relationship there with the residency staff.
His wife and extended family have been active supporters of Sharsheret since its inception. Alan’s personal involvement in Sharsheret was motivated by his desire to enhance men’s knowledge of prostate cancer and the genetic factors that may play a role in its development. His goal is to improve men’s health in this area. Ultimately, Alan’s hope is that the wealth of information that Sharsheret commands will be a resource for men’s prostate health in the same way it is currently a resource for women in the areas of breast and ovarian cancer. Alan is married to Miriam and has 4 children and 7 grandchildren. He enjoys swimming, golf and sailing.
