landmark successes within the field of

The Giants of Dermatology™ event leadership team has been monitoring the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus) carefully. Due to emerging information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, as well as the numerous travel restrictions issued by various institutions and companies over the past week, it is out of an abundance of caution that we are postponing the 2020 Giants of Dermatology Awards Ceremony that was scheduled to take place on Thursday March 19, 2020.

The hope is to be able to celebrate the wonderful accomplishments of this year’s award inductees at a later date and time. We will post additional details here as they become available. We appreciate your understanding of these extenuating circumstances and look forward to celebrating with you soon.

The Giants of DermatologyTM program celebrates those individuals who have achieved landmark successes within the field of dermatology.
