Corporate Partner Support
The American Academy of Dermatology values the support it receives from its corporate partners. Funding is used to further the Academy’s mission of promoting leadership in dermatology and excellence in patient care through education, research and advocacy.
The consistent support of corporate partners allows the Academy to provide a wide variety of programs and services to its members and is vital to the continued advancement of the specialty of dermatology. Some of the programs and services that have been provided through your generous support are:
