Please join us in San Francisco for Skin Disease Education Foundation (SDEF)'s  Women's & Pediatric Dermatology Seminar 2010 as we explore the chief clinical topics relevant to skin diseases in women and children.  Dermatologists, pediatricians, ob/gyns and other healthcare providers who manage these conditions are invited to attend. You have the option of registering for one or both parts of the conference. 
This conference is a great opportunity to catch up on the latest advances in the field. Leading experts will present clinically relevant information that you will find immediately useful in the care of your patients. You’ll learn about common and uncommon skin diseases in femaile and pediatric patients. Sessions will focus on vulvar diseases, hair loss, anti-aging, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, acne through the ages, dermatoses, neonatology, and many more clinical topics. Interactive sessions will offer attendees the chance to ask challenging questions.  Dermatology Jeopardy is featured—a very stimulating portion of the seminar that past attendees have found very useful and informative.

SDEF's Women's & Pediatrics Dermatology Seminar is held in a collegial and pleasant environment that is the hallmark of all SDEF Seminars   Register today—space is limited.


We look forward to seeing you on September 24-26, 2010, at SDEF  Women's & Pediatric Dermatology Seminar 2010 Grand Hyatt San Francisco.
