16th annual Residents Meeting

October 24-26, 2014

Registration now closed

The Residents Meeting is a one-and-a-half day program that focuses on educating dermatology residents about recent advances in treatments and the management of psoriasis. Residents attend lectures and learn the most up-to-date information about psoriasis research, diagnosis, treatment, and management. In addition to lectures, participants have the opportunity to interact with distinguished faculty and other chief residents during workshops, social functions and scheduled free time.

The 2014 16th annual Residents Meeting will be held in Dallas, Texas at the Westin Galleria.

NPF Resident’s Meeting in Dallas next weekend

Given the recent concern about the Ebola outbreak and the affected patients in Dallas, the National Psoriasis Foundation wants to reassure you that the Resident’s Meeting in Dallas is still scheduled as planned.

The hotel site is 5 miles from the hospital where the Ebola case has been in the news. Dallas is considered safe; In fact, to date Dallas is not even included in the list of airports that has implemented screenings. Dr. Alan Menter of Baylor, who is leading the NPF Residents Meeting, has been in touch with Presbyterian Hospital where the Ebola case has taken place, and he is completely reassured that it’s safe.

We are looking forward to a very successful meeting next weekend.

Please be assured that your safety is our top priority. We will certainly let you know if further concerns arise. We encourage you to contact us with questions if needed. Please email Leah North at or call 800.723.9166, ext. 396.
