Aspire is a quarterly print publication that shares the stories about all of us in the dermatology community: individual dermatologists volunteering skin care to needy patients or supporting a cause or organization near to their hearts; corporations and their employees dedicating themselves professionally and personally to advancing skin health; the Academy, with its wealth of programs and services; and recognize those who support our mission through donations and volunteerism.

"The world is changing and dermatology is changing. We need to make sure that dermatology never loses sight of dealing with serious issues, illnesses and problems of the people in the world. I can see dermatology’s huge potential to make that difference in the world, and it’s so important to support the Academy and its efforts."

– Eugene J. Van Scott, MD, FAAD
