AAD stands in support of people of Israel

Statement from AAD President Terrence A Cronin Jr., MD, FAAD

ROSEMONT, Ill. (October 9, 2023) — The American Academy of Dermatology stands strongly in support of our members and their patients in the state of Israel and in the Israel Dermatology Society. There can be no justification for the torturing, kidnapping, and murdering of innocent civilians. We pray for the swift return of peace and the opportunity for all our members in the region to live in safety and prosperity.
