New to Plenary - DermTales

Be a part of Plenary and share your story!

New this year, DermTales is the AAD’s take on the popular live story telling events, StorySLAM. During these events, storytellers (slammers) have 5 minutes each to tell a story, based on a theme chosen for the event. 

For the AAD Summer Meeting, we invite our storytellers to submit a story about an experience that had an impact on how they practice dermatology.  The submissions should be a brief summary of your story (500 words or less).

The submission deadline is May 24, 2019. All submissions will be reviewed and scored by the Scientific Assembly Committee. After the first round of review, semi-finalists will be asked to record a video of their story for review.  Four (4) finalists will then be selected and invited to tell their story live on stage at the 2019 AAD Summer Meeting during the Plenary session on Friday, July 26 between 9:00 - 11:30 a.m.
