The Dermatology Foundation

The Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3, charitable organization. Established in 1964, it provides support for innovative research projects, enabling advancements in patient care.

A Message from the DF President:
Kim B. Yancey, M.D.
Kim B. Yancey, M.D.

I would like to extend my deep appreciation to the many DF members, societies and industry supporters who gave generously to the Dermatology Foundation over the past year. Your contributions made it possible for the DF to invest in research projects that have the strong potential to transform novel ideas into a greater understanding of dermatologic conditions and new treatments in our field.

As we begin our annual fundraising efforts, I cannot think of a time in the history of the Foundation when the participation of the full dermatologic community was more important. While adequate research funding remains a significant and ongoing challenge for the specialty, the opportunities for medical advances are tremendous. When you give to the DF, you sponsor innovative research. When we all give, we can profoundly change the practice of dermatology and improve the lives of patients everywhere.

This year, join me or renew your support, and help shape the future of dermatology.

Thank you and kindest regards,

Kim B. Yancey, MD
