The Journal of Drugs in Dermatology is making additional resources available to medical professionals who wish to continue their education in light of medical conference cancelations due to COVID-19.
With ever-growing cancellations of medical conferences due to the coronavirus, the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD) announces it is now offering supplementary resources through its continuing medical education (CME) online library to medical professionals who wish to continue their education.

“The JDD CME library is now updated to accommodate a growing demand for online CME resources. We expect this demand to grow in light of the cancellation of some medical meetings due to the global COVID-19 situation,” says Shelley Tanner, CEO and president of SanovaWorks, which produces JDD.
The resources include quick, free activities facilitated through Creighton University Health Sciences Continuing Education. Topics vary from aesthetics to medical treatments for common skin diseases, such as rosacea and acne, and a few activities revolve around JDD’s monthly podcast hosted by Adam Friedman, M.D., George Washing University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
