By Henry W. Lim, MD
President, American Academy of Dermatology

The leadership of the American Academy of Dermatology joins with all Americans in sharing our deep sorrow in the wake of Monday’s deadly mass shooting and our strong support for the victims and the entire Las Vegas community.

While we are shocked at the devastation afflicted on so many innocent people in such a short time, we are also inspired and moved by the heroic response we witnessed from law enforcement, first responders, the Las Vegas health care community, and the concert goers themselves.

According to news reports the area of greatest need is blood donations. Those in the Las Vegas area can find information on where to donate here. The Las Vegas Clark County Commission Chair has set up a Go Fund Me site to raise funds for shooting victims. You can learn more here.
