This Week's Meeting Recap

I want to thank everyone who was able to make it to our meeting on Monday! We had an excellent turnout and our group continues to gain new members at each meeting. Dr. Erica Kelly gave a very engaging talk on "The Cosmetic Consultation." We learned how to approach patients seeking cosmetic treatment and what some of the therapeutic options Dermatology has to offer them. We also discussed plans for upcoming service projects for our group this spring. Courtney Freasier, our volunteer coordinator, is organizing a Miles for Melanoma walk. We are trying to finalize a date this week, afterwhich we will be able to get the ball rolling on planning! We also discussed plans for the Skin Cancer and Sunburn Awareness Teaching Program that was created two years ago by DIG members. A group of third year students, including Julie Cummings, Tray Speck, Jenny Valliere, and Jennifer Schopp volunteered to revise the teaching presentation for this year. Jenny Valliere will be leading this group, and will keep us posted on future dates and plans for this outreach program! We will be looking for volunteers in a couple months, so please keep these activities in mind.
