Join us in Las Vegas as Skin Disease Education Foundation presents the 11th Annual Las Vegas Dermatology Seminar, November 4-6, 2010.   Nationally recognized leaders in dermatology come together to discuss and review the current state of knowledge surrounding the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of patients with dermatologic diseases.  The program features key clinical topics including skin cancers, atopic dermatitis, acne, rosacea, and other important issues in medical dermatology as well as the role of active naturals and vitamin D in skin care.


Despite the advances in knowledge regarding psoriasis, the pathophysiology of the disease remains poorly understood.  Thus, we are pleased to once again to offer the highly anticipated 7th Annual Psoriasis Forum.  The highlight of the forum will be the discussions around biologic therapies for the treatment of psoriasis and other skin- related diseases. This forum will to be of interest to both the resident as well as the seasoned clinician.


Please join us at SDEF's 11th Annual Las Vegas Dermatology Seminar, November 4-6, 2010   for a rewarding educational experience where you can expect to be updated on many of the issues that  may be challenging   in your own practice. The format is interactive, informal and relaxed, encouraging a free-flowing exchange of ideas and practical solutions for the busy clinician.
