The Year in Review is about you. At a time when so much is changing, and each of you is being pulled toward a multitude of priorities, it is reassuring and heartwarming to see your commitment to the Academy and the work being done on behalf of close to 19,000 members. In 2016, so many of you — as physicians, colleagues, peers, community leaders, corporate partners, and as a collective whole — stepped up to the forefront to strengthen the specialty and strengthen your communities. From launching Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!™ in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Florida, to kicking off plans for a January 2017 hike in Chile across Patagonia, 2016 saw members showing how they could rally their communities to support important AAD programs and services that positively impact the public. As you read through these pages, you will learn about the success of AAD’s Latino Outreach Program (see page 7). This success happened because of members like you. AAD members Antoanella Calame, MD, and Maria Bonilla, MD, drove from San Diego to do skin cancer screenings at the Ventanillas de Salud at the Mexican Consulate for Mexican workers who cross the border daily to work in the agricultural ﬁelds of California. In the middle of the night from 1 – 4 in the morning , Drs. Calame and Bonilla screened nearly 50 individuals, but it didn’t end there. Dr. Calame has now committed to ﬁnding ways to raise funds to provide sun-protective clothing and hats for these workers. Like Dr. Calame, AAD member Susan Boiko, MD, volunteered to do screenings at a mobile unit at a library in San Diego, which ultimately has led to representing the AAD on the steering committee for the health programs at the consulate. There are stories after stories that highlight how invested our members are in serving the public, and this Year in Review highlights the impact of your service and support during this past year. Camp Discovery continues to be the signature program that showcases how chronic skin diseases affect the lives of so many, and how much time and treasure our members are willing to give up to provide a week of respite for children with these conditions across the country. The importance of this program was highlighted at the 2016 President’s Gala when Lilly USA endowed a scholarship for one child at each camp in perpetuity in honor of AAD past-president Mark Lebwohl, MD. Beyond the hours and energy you invested to support both the AAD and other community outreach programs to beneﬁt the public, you were also generous with ﬁnancial resources. In 2016, we saw a 10 percent increase in contributions from our individual donors and a 28 percent increase in those who joined our giving societies beginning with an annual gift of $1,000 (see full list on page 11). On behalf of the AAD, the Council on Community, Corporate, and Philanthropic Relations, the members, and those you have served, congratulations and thank you for your generosity. David M. Pariser, MD, FAAD Chair, Council on Community, Corporate, and Philanthropic Relations Nancy Ali Senior Director, Community, Corporate, and Philanthropic Relations SUPPORT AAD At the end of the 2016 ﬁscal year, the Academy saw a $200,000 increase in revenue from the 2015 revenue goal, but fell short by ﬁve percent of hitting its 2016 goal of $6.4 million. These funds support the AAD’s overall mission and advance dermatology’s efforts to spread Healthy Skin. Healthy Lives. ® through critical programs and services for its members and the patients they serve.
