The National Rosacea Society (NRS) was honored for 20 years of serving the rosacea community at an educational symposium on the disorder, sponsored by Galderma Laboratories, during the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) annual meeting in early March. Actress Cynthia Nixon, who suffers from rosacea, introduced Sam Huff, executive director of the NRS.
Mr. Huff recognized several of the many physicians who have contributed to the understanding of this condition, including Dr. Lynn Drake of Harvard Medical School and editor of Rosacea Review; Dr. Mark Dahl, professor emeritus at the Mayo Clinic and former president of the AAD; Dr. John Wolf, chairman of dermatology at Baylor University; Dr. Richard Granstein, chairman of dermatology at Cornell University; Dr. Alexa Kimball, director of the Clinical Unit for Research Trials in Skin at Harvard Medical School; and Dr. Martin Steinhoff, head of the rosacea research group at the University of California - San Francisco.
Here is a video of the introduction by Ms. Nixon and Mr. Huff's remarks.
The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
