Attention Fellows, Residents, and Medical Students:
Travel Award Available for SPD Members

One travel award is available on a competitive basis to a fellow, resident, or medical student who is an SPD member and presents a Case of the Year at the SPD Pre-AAD Meeting. This is an effort to encourage participation among trainees interested in pediatric dermatology and helps provide recognition for exceptional work as well as financial assistance to attend the meeting. The SPD Awards and Grants Committee will evaluate the quality of the case/poster, focusing on whether it presents “new” information, is relevant to care of children with skin diseases, quality of data, and approved consent process. One $1,000 award is available to fellows, residents, or medical students. To apply for the award, check the appropriate box at the time of case submission.
