DIG Member Has Poster Accepted to 2009 AAD Meeting

Congratulations are in order for Jennifer Vickers, a 4th year medical student at UTMB. Her original research entitled, "Pimple Popper, MD: Why Seinfeld is Consequential to Dermatology" has been accepted as a 2009 poster presentation (P901) at the 67th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) in San Francisco, California under the category of Art History and Humanities of Dermatology. All abstracts sent for consideration to this meeting are subject to blinded peer-review and must receive a cutoff score for inclusion in the program. It is excellent for a medical student to have a poster accepted to this meeting. Ms. Vickers collaborators on this research were Dr. Richard Wagner (dermatology) and Tatsuo Uchida (biostatistics).
