Celebrating 75 years of leadership and impact!

Support sun safety

For over a decade, the Academy's Shade Structure Program has provided grants to schools and local community organizations across the country to build permanent shade structures and provide valuable education on sun safety. These structures provide shade for more than 564,000 individuals and promote sun protection. To learn more on how your gift can support this program, contact us.





The Camp Discovery family

“When our daughter Emily’s dermatologist recommended Camp Discovery for her, we were afraid to send her so far away on her own – but once she came home from Camp, we immediately knew we had made the right decision,” said Denise and John Hennessey, parents of 12-year-old Camp Discovery camper Emily.

AAD Camp Discovery offers children with chronic skin conditions a week where they can participate in fun summer camp activities and, more importantly, make new friends and build confidence. Oftentimes the Camp Discovery experience gives children a sense of acceptance they can’t find anywhere else. Learn more about Camp Discovery through the eyes of Emily’s parents.


LEO Pharma employees go to camp

Volunteers are an essential part of the Academy’s Camp Discovery program, which annually gives over 330 children with chronic skin conditions a life-changing summer camp experience. On Aug. 15, Camp Horizon in Millville, Penn. – one of six AAD Camp Discovery camps – welcomed a dozen LEO Pharma employees as volunteers for a day. “We were thrilled with the opportunity to volunteer at Camp Discovery,” said LEO Pharma’s Brook Jennings, Senior Director of Marketing. “It was one of the most eye-opening and rewarding experiences.” Read more of the LEO Pharma employees’ volunteer story.
