Doctor objects to AAD logo appearing on sun protection products

December 1, 2007

The American Academy of Dermatology announced in May 2007 that it had launched its Seal of Recognition program, in which the Academy charges companies thousands of dollars for the right to display the Academy's logo on sun protection products that meet the Academy's criteria. Academy members who back the program say it is a noble cause that will greatly fuel the organization's skin cancer education efforts.
