This week the Dermatology Hall of Fame announced its plan to recognize its inductees in Washington, D.C. on February 28, 2019. The inductees will also be presented at a ceremony during the 2019 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. in March.
Founded in 2018, the Dermatology Hall of Fame seeks to honor both past and present pioneers in dermatology. Every year, the Executive Board of the Dermatology Hall of Fame will nominate individuals who have distinguished themselves through their work to advance the study and practice of dermatology. A separate Selection Committee will vote on the nominees to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
“The field of dermatology has been furthered by tremendous advances over the last 20 years,” says executive board member Daniel Mark Siegel, M.D, M.S. “It is time to recognize those giants who have had the biggest impact in the field.”
Other distinguished experts will join Dr. Siegel on the Executive Board of the Dermatology Hall of Fame, including: C. William Hanke, M.D., Douglas DiRuggiero, MHS, PA-C, Jill Waibel, M.D., Mark Lebwohl, M.D. and Robert Kirsner, M.D..
