The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the annual Dermatology Residents’ Meeting on October 7 and 8, 2023 in Washington, D.C.
Experts and co-chairs Brad P. Glick, D.O., MPH, FAAD, and Samuel Hwang M.D., Ph.D. have the honor of hosting the silver anniversary event with 100 attendees selected from 207 applicants representing 72 different institutions in 29 states, Canada, and the Dominican Republic.
“It’s amazing to see how far this event has come since Dr. Mark Lebwohl helped NPF establish the first Residents’ Meeting in 1999,” said Leah M. Howard, J.D., the President and CEO of NPF. “This Residents’ Meeting plays a role in driving our mission forward. It is a yearly chance to spend several focused days with the best minds in the field, all looking into the same disease. It's a time of sharing, learning, and addressing conventional thinking. It's a very unique experience that has positive repercussions as a new generation of dermatologists start to take care of the people in this community.”
“What I like most about the Residents’ Meeting after years of participating is seeing past residents who are now physicians and dermatologists,” said Mark Lebwohl, M.D., a past NPF Medical Board Chair and the founder of the Residents’ Meeting. “The bottom line is that we really taught residents how to take care of psoriasis patients, and we continue to do so. The meeting has lasted, and hopefully will last for many years to come.”
