Coalition of Patient Advocates for Skin Disease Research (CPA-SDR)

The President of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), Dr. Fred F. Castrow's presidential year is titled "Our Patients First." In keeping with this theme, the AAD hosted a partnership conference with 18 of the 25 member organizations of CPA-SDR.

One of the goals of this conference was to work together to have greater visibility at the AAD Annual Meeting and learn how to exhibit effectively so physicians will be aware of patient groups that are available for information and support. The partnership conference was part of a larger, ongoing effort by the Academy to partner with the patient advocacy groups in a number of areas.
