Happy Holidays to you and yours!

As I look back on this past year, I am reminded of the many ways AAD members, other individuals, and companies have helped strengthen the Academy’s mission. From expansion of AAD Camp Discovery, to exciting volunteer opportunities through Dermatology in Action, and the launch of Leadership Institute at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans. Your support has made a world of difference!

Read on in this issue of Philanthrop-e to see how members and others have directly impacted AAD programs through volunteerism and financial support. For those who have not yet invested in these valuable efforts…there’s still time to make a difference with a year-end contribution! Visit www.AADdevelopment.org to learn how you can support AAD programs in this Season of Giving and year-round.

Thank you all for your generosity and support!

Academy's Leadership Institute helps dermatologists build valuable skills

The Academy’s Leadership Development programs have been invaluable to my professional development. As I was just finishing residency in 2001, I participated in the first Academy Leadership Forum. At that meeting I realized that I needed far more than medical knowledge to realize my full potential as a dermatologist.

Your support of the Academy’s Leadership Institute through the Sustaining Fund will help more dermatologists develop leadership skills that will serve themselves and the profession far into the future.


Corporate executives discover more than camp at AAD Camp Discovery

What happens when two corporate executives give a week of their time to volunteer as counselors at AAD Camp Discovery? They experience an inspirational adventure they’ll never forget. Read the story about John Harvey, Vice President of Sales, Coria Laboratories and Dustin Holt, Midwest District Manager, in the daily emails John wrote to his colleagues about his and Dustin’s adventures which he shares with us.
