A Message from the DF President:
Kim B. Yancey, M.D.
Kim B. Yancey, M.D.

The year-end is quickly approaching and I wanted to take this opportunity to share an important message with you before 2018 comes to a close. This is a very critical time for the Dermatology Foundation. Every dues contribution we receive by December 31st directly impacts our ability to provide much-needed research support in 2019.

Please take a few minutes now to consider how important continuous progress is to our specialty—and to our patients. Every DF membership furthers our field by clearing the path for exceptional minds to expand our understanding of disease and bring forward innovative treatments.

This year, please join me as a member of the Dermatology Foundation. I believe it is the best way to further patient care.

My best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.

Kindest regards,

Kim B. Yancey, MD
