Warmest wishes for 2018 and January SVDS Event! 

Dear SVDS Members,

It is an absolute pleasure to wish the members of SVDS the best for 2018! 

We are excited to start 2018 together in a wonderful way - with a special event, held January 17th, 2018 sponsored by Skin Fix at Localis (https://www.localissacramento.com) that will feature friends, food, great discussion and learning!

This is the first time ever that SVDS has held an event at Localis. We have reserved the entire venue for a very special evening in conjunction with the sponsors from Skin Fix. For those of you who participated last year in the Skin Fix event, you may remember that the event was packed and several members commented that it was their "favorite meeting of the year, by far!"

This event will start at 6:30 at Localis (2031 S St, Sacramento, CA 95811) and feature delicious food and wine pairings. Special diet requests will be honored but need to be provided with your RSVP. 

Please RSVP by Friday January 12th at noon to Deby D via debyd56@comcast.net to reserve your seat for this event.

Clinical cases and pathology will be moderated by our new SVDS President, Dr. Joshua Schulman.

On a personal note, it was an honor serving our society for 4 years in the capacity of President and Vice-President, and look forward to remaining involved in the society leadership as a member of the executive committee. The new leaders have exciting plans for the future of SVDS. Please join me in giving them our full support and enthusiasm!

Best regards and here's to an fantastic 2018,

February - March 2017

SVDS News: 
It would be incredible to get you all more involved in the Sacramento Valley Dermatology Society meetings. Consider inviting dermatology friends and colleagues. Also please consider submitting your interesting cases for presentation.

To increase the role we play in the development of future young dermatologists, we are implementing a new program. Interesting cases presented at SVDS (especially the "case of the night"), can be written up in manuscript format and submitted for publication by a medical student/research fellow under the guidance of the SVDS member who presented the case. To increase the academic visibility of the SVDS, these manuscripts could include the following acknowledgement "This case was presented at the Sacramento Valley Dermatological Society on (date) (and was voted as case of the night)." SVDS is willing to reimburse any manuscript submission fees, if applicable, of $100 (or less) per published manuscript that includes this acknowledgement.

Thank you: 
Thank you to all for coming out last week during the storm for a memorable evening sponsored by Skinceuticals with guest speaker Dr. George Hruza who presented on AAD Updates. I believe this was a fantastic way to start the year, spending time with friends - old and new!

We have some exciting plans for the upcoming year, with special events and memorable, educational and fun evenings!
 

Best, 
Dr. Jared Jagdeo, SVDS President, on behalf of the SVDS Executive Committee
