The Women's Dermatologic Society is very passionate about our Service Program, which began in 2004. We have created two distinct programs that offer skin cancer prevention outreach and sun safety education to communities and schools around the United States. The WDS Service Programs include Play Safe in the Sun, & Coast-2-Coast.
The goal of the Regional Group is to help facilitate local gatherings to provide opportunities in each region for networking, and mentorship, as well as for service projects to be carried out more expeditiously. These opportunities can be events held individually or held concurrently with different cities and regions.
