Call for IJWD Editor

Dear WDS Members,

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the departure of Jane Grant-Kels, MD as Co-Editor of the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology (IJWD). As we are excited for Jane to begin her new adventure as the Deputy Editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (JAAD), we are sad to see her go.  We know that Jane would have stay on if she could, but the AAD Leadership felt that there may be a potential conflict of interest by being involved in two journals, so she needed to step-down as Co-Editor of IJWD. Jane has been a key contributor to the IJWD and is one of the main reasons for their success. Her passion, dedication, and inspiration will be forever rooted in the IJWD! 

Jane will remain with the IJWD until May 31, where she will then step down to peruse her new role with JAAD. WDS will be onboarding a new Co-Editor in the upcoming months and is putting a call out for applications for a new Co-Editor.

Mary E. Maloney, MD
WDS President 2017-2018
