  • Welcome to the 2018 AAD Annual Meeting in San Diego!This is our 76th Annual Meeting, and I am proud and delighted to be president of the Academy at a time when advances in our specialty are at an all-time high. In my Plenary address last year as the newly elected president of the Academy, I said that “our Washington agenda has never been more challenging, but our Academy is prepared to meet that challenge.” With that challenge, I can think of no better way to take in the depth and breadth of dermatology, stay up to date, and learn the best ways to adapt to change than by attending the AAD Annual Meeting, the world’s largest national society dermatology meeting. > MORE
