In this issue, our feature story provides three examples that illustrate how the success that you experience in life can be proportional to that which you give back. Beyond the successful practices and businesses of our members, we learn how they have enriched the lives of others through the impact they have made in their community. We explore how special individuals have used their passions, skills, and assets for benevolent efforts, leaving an indelible mark on the world. In addition to a lifetime of dedication to dermatology, Phillip Frost, MD, and his wife Patricia have generously allocated their resources to education, the arts, technology, and scores of other philanthropic endeavors. One of his goals is to make his home in Miami “grow,” and through his efforts, Miami is thriving as a cultural and scientific mecca. Kary Duncan, MD, is a reminder of what we love about Aspire — heart and soul. Beyond running a successful practice in California, she and her husband David pursued their mutual passion for wine and have been running two amazing wineries — Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars — in Napa Valley. But she also remains very involved in dermatology, fundraising, and writing textbooks. Her energy and commitment are infectious. Pharmaceutical legend Charles Stiefel has overcome some of life’s most difficult challenges and now targets donations that will change the future of medical research and improve the chances for others facing similar challenges in the future. While all these people have chosen distinctly different paths, they share a vital commonality — the desire to make it a better world for the next generation. Others that are featured in this issue have also left a lasting impact in their endeavors. Every volunteer like Sheena Nguyen, MD, not only supports Camp Discovery but leaves an enduring message of hope for campers and their families. Jane Scribner, MD, traveled overseas as a Navy officer to perpetuate our efforts to bring dermatology and humanitarianism to doctors and patients globally. Tirsit Retta, MD, is using AAD resources that are furthering education for dermatologists moving forward. These people are indeed special, but we hope the message comes across that they can be an inspiration to us all. Explore your personal passion and turn it into something that can leave a lasting mark. Leave your thumbprint of humanity behind for future generations. How will you leave your own impression on the world? David M. Pariser, MD, FAAD Chair, Council on Community, Corporate, and Philanthropic Relations Nancy Ali Senior Director, Community, Corporate, and Philanthropic Relations SUPPORT AAD The Academy has set an ambitious fundraising goal for 2017, aimed at supporting the AAD’s overall mission, and advancing dermatology’s efforts to spread Healthy Skin. Healthy Lives.® The Council on Community, Corporate, and Philanthropic Relations is working to raise $6.24 million by the end of the year. We will be sharing our progress with you throughout the year, so look for this graphic in upcoming issues of Aspire.
