July 27-30: 2017 AAD Summer Meeting


 

The American Academy of Dermatology will host their summer meeting in New York City from July 27-30.

"Summer meeting attendees will have access to a wide range of medical, pediatric, surgical and cosmetic dermatology topics," said Jacob Levitt, MD, FAAD, chair of the AAD Scientific Assembly Committee. "In addition to the latest, comprehensive reviews of recently and soon-to-be-released medications for psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, attendees will receive a reminder of the full range of differential diagnoses and therapies at their disposal that they can bring back to their patients."

Levitt noted a number of hot topics would be covered, including information on T-cell therapy for B-cell mediated diseases; the burden of skin disease in the United States; the evidence behind platelet-rich plasma procedures; and the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and melanoma and how to use targeted novel therapies to treat patients with these diseases. "Hands-on sessions allow for acquisition of new skills post-residency - especially nail surgery, wound repair, and filler injections," he added.

Early bird discounted registration rates are in effect until 12 p.m. Central on June 21. From that point until July 19, registration is available at the standard rates. After July 19, on-site registration will be required.
