DF Welcomes New President

The Foundation's Board of Trustees elected Executive Committee member Janet A. Fairley, M.D., to serve as its new president. Dr. Fairley is John S. Strauss Professor and Chair of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Iowa. As an active volunteer for many years, she has lent her leadership to a variety of DF fundraising, research award, and educational programs, including co-chairing the annual DF Clinical Symposia. The Trustees are pleased to welcome Dr. Fairley to her new role.

Sincere Thanks to an Exemplary Leader

Kim B. Yancey, M.D. was honored at the Foundation's recent Annual Meeting of Membership in Washington, DC, as he completed his term as president. Dr. Bruce U. Wintroub, DF Chairman, shared that Dr. Yancey "has been a member for over 30 years and a volunteer for nearly as many. As our president, he was a guiding force in the development of the mid-career and diversity research awards, and the new planned giving program. His strong and effective leadership will be missed."
