Support dermatology patients.

Visit a Cause Supporter booth and they'll donate $100 to a selected cause.

Our patients’ dermatological issues are more than skin deep. These exhibitors have committed to awareness-building, education, and programs with the AAD. Each will donate $100 to a selected cause for every badge scanned, just look for this icon!

How it works

Pick up your passport at the AAD Resource Center Booth 4039, then visit each AAD Cause Supporter’s booth, scan your badge, get your passport stamped, and they will donate $100 for every scan.
