In February, the Coalition of Skin Diseases (CSD) along with members of the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AADA) and the Society of Investigative Dermatology (SID) went to Capital Hill to encourage increased federal funding for skin research. This is necessary if we want to maintain the research that is currently being funded as well as continue to look at promising new research opportunities. As members of the CSD we support these efforts.
If you are interested in becoming involved in advocacy issues, let us know. There are other things you can do from home if you are not able to go to Capital Hill.
