Apply before July 8 for a Cutting Edge Research Grant. Up to $100,000 will be awarded through this online-only grant process. Application submissions are accepted on any topic; however, Board-directed research topics are recommended. The
goal of the program is to stimulate a broad scope of research relevant to
dermatologic surgeons and the specialty at-large.
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and a great time for ASDS members to offer free skin cancer screenings to promote skin health and potentially save lives in their communities. Data collected during the first three years of the Choose Skin Health program reveal that 1 in 10 people is diagnosed with skin cancer during free screenings offered by members. These data elevate the importance of the free screening program since early detection is a key to fighting skin cancer. Members can offer free screenings during the month of May (or any time of year) with available times and days posted on the ASDS website. Sign up and receive forms, patient education materials and samples.
Corporate partners are encouraged to exhibit at the ASDS Annual Meeting and workshops throughout the year that are targeted to both beginning and experienced dermatologic surgeons.
