Message from Seattle Derm President Dr. Laura Swanson

Hello, Seattle Dermatology members. Welcome to the 2019/2020 Season. I am excited and honored to serve as your president this year. I continue to learn much from this group and look forward to another year of interesting patients, inspiring speakers, and invaluable interactions with this community of intentional lifelong learners. We are highlighting the climate crisis this year by starting off with an information-packed and impactful talk given remotely by Misha Rosenbach, MD, by going green with our surveys, and by asking each speaker to include one slide that addresses how climate change has or will impact their subject matter. Please continue to bring your interesting patients and to attend the lectures and dinners if you can. I am always open to feedback, so please reach out with any questions, suggestions, or comments. Thanks for being a part of our group!
