In-kind supporters

The Academy is proud to recognize its in-kind supporters who have provided in-kind contributions of products and medical supplies for approved Academy live demonstration sessions at the Annual and Summer Meetings, as well as in support of humanitarian programs like Play Sun Smart™.

Typically, more than 250 board-certified dermatologists attend each live patient demonstration session. Attendees have the opportunity to view a variety of procedures as performed by leading experts.  Previous demonstrations have included botulinum toxin and filler injections. Companies who provide in-kind contributions may be restricted from the session room.

Since 1999, the Academy, Major League Baseball®, and the Major League Baseball Players Association have partnered to raise awareness about the importance of sun safety and the early detection of skin cancer through the Play Sun Smart™ program. Each participant who is screened will receive a complimentary assortment of consumer products, along with important information on sun safety from the Academy. In keeping with the Academy’s sun-safety recommendations, sunscreens must provide broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) coverage and be rated SPF 30 or higher. Therefore, only products meeting these new guidelines will be accepted.

Thank you to all of our supporters. Your collaboration is invaluable.
