Hopkins Co-hosts One of the Largest Dermatology Conferences in the Country
The 79th Annual Atlantic Dermatology Conference will bring together more than 400 dermatologists to discuss recent developments in scientific research and patient care. The conference will be held May 10-12, 2002 at the Marriot Waterfront Hotel on Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
Special topics include melanoma, autoimmune diseases, the immune response, cosmetic dermatology, contact dermatology, and approaches to treating these often debilitating diseases. In addition to presentations by leading dermatologists, an entire day of the conference is dedicated to diagnosing more than 50 patients with challenging ailments.
"This conference is an excellent forum for sharing scientific developments that will lead to better care for those with skin disease," says Daniel N. Sauder, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Dermatology at Hopkins, and chairman of the scientific session of the conference.
The Atlantic Dermatological Conference is hosted by Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland Medical Center and the Maryland Dermatological Society.
