December 2011

Enjoy the holiday season!

This is the time of year when our thoughts are on giving - giving thanks, giving presents, or giving back. It’s the perfect time to show the caring and compassion of our specialty by volunteering for the Dermatology in Action hands-on project at the 2012 Annual Meeting. Last year’s project volunteers worked with HandsOn New Orleans to revitalize a community center.

Givers' guide tip:
It costs the Academy $3,000 each to send 50 participants to the Leadership Forum. Your gift will help develop tomorrow’s leaders in dermatology!

'Tis the season

Among the best gifts are those that bring joy to others. When 11 year-old Emily Hennessey got home from AAD Camp Discovery this summer, she donated her babysitting and pet-sitting money so other kids could experience Camp too. Make a difference this holiday season by matching Emily’s gift!

Promotional Information Programs offered in 2012

An exciting new opportunity will be available beginning with the 2012 Annual Meeting. The Academy will be offering companies the right to hold a Promotional Information Program (PIP). There will be a number of PIPs available on different evenings during the Annual Meeting. These are non-CME on label programs, and the cost will be $25,000. AAD will provide the room. Food, AV, etc. is extra and set-up through AAD vendors. PIPs will take place in the evening – probably for a 2-3 hour period and will be in one of the AAD block hotels. For more information, please contact Miriam St. Jon, senior manager, Corporate Relations at (847) 240-1401, or via email at mstjon@aad.org.

Other opportunities still available for 2012 corporate support may be found here.





Mentoring plays a key role in developing leaders

The Leadership Institute offers many programs to build strong leaders in dermatology. Facilitating mentor relationships is an important aspect of the Leadership Institute. Mentors provide invaluable advice and experience that helps further the development of tomorrow's leaders. This past year Mary E. Maloney, MD, FAAD, was paired with Bethanee J. Schlosser, MD, FAAD. Says Dr. Maloney, "The mentorship relationship is something that provides great growth for both people. We worked through several administrative problems during the year – and I will tell you, I learned as much from her as she did from me."

AAD industry summit planned for 2012

Plans to hold the first AAD industry summit were announced at the August Corporate Partner Circle meeting in New York. The summit, which will join Academy and industry leaders, is being planned for 2012. A planning committee made up of the Academy’s Corporate Relations Task Force members and industry leaders will develop the agenda and format for the meeting.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring industry and Academy leadership together to discuss issues of mutual interest and to strengthen relationships with the Academy’s Corporate Partners. More details to follow.
