Higgins honored with Outstanding Service Award
H. William Higgins II, M.D., M.B.E., of Providence, Rhode
Island, recently was recognized as an emerging leader of the American Society
for Dermatologic Surgery with the ASDS Award for Outstanding Service.
The award is given annually to one member who has
volunteered his or her time for multiple Society projects or initiatives. In an
effort to recognize younger volunteers, award recipients must be in their first
10 years as an ASDS member.
The award was presented to Higgins during the 2016 ASDS
Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
Dr. Higgins is a past Resident Representative to the ASDS
Board of Directors. As a 2015-16 mentee in the ASDS Future Leaders Network
program, Dr. Higgins spearheaded a guide on planning, designing and setting up
a Mohs Micrographic Surgery lab.
Dr. Higgins also serves on various ASDS committees,
including the Audit Committee, Tradeshow Work Group and Young Dermatologic
Surgeons Work Group. He practices at University Dermatology in Providence,
Rhode Island, where he is part of the Mohs surgery unit.
“William is an enthusiastic volunteer, always willing to
give of his time to help further ASDS initiatives and projects,” ASDS President
Thomas E. Rohrer said. “He has been a dedicated member and established himself
as a young leader in ASDS.”
