Skin cancer, take a hike

In addition to the second annual Practical Dermatology & Dermatopathology Symposium that will be held at the Vail Marriott in June, there will also be a special fundraiser that is focused on increasing the awareness for skin cancer. The campaign is called Skin Cancer, Take a Hike, and attendees of the conference are participating in a “virtual hike.” The virtual hike allows participants to choose a hike or activity of their choice and they raise money in the process through donations. The goal of the hiking event is to raise money for the American Academy of Dermatology, which gives back to communities through free skin cancer screenings and installing playground shade structures. The symposium will be held June 18-21 at the Vail Marriott. There are some new components to the meeting this year with slide review sessions for residents and an entrepreneurship talk for physicians by the Jack Welsh Management Institute.
