As you may know in 2015 the SDPA Board of Directors starting working towards a special goal to begin a Foundation which would serve as the philanthropic arm of the SDPA. The SDPA is thrilled to announcing the full launch of the The Dermatology PA Foundation (DPAF)!
The DPAF was formally established in 2015 to help dermatology PAs expand their leadership and contribution to the dermatology PA community and patients. The DPAF is led by a Board of 10 Trustees who are appointed by the SDPA Board of Directors. The Foundation seeks to inspire hope and achieve progress in the field of dermatology by funding education for dermatology PAs, supporting medical research for finding effective treatments and eventually cures for dermatological conditions and promoting philanthropy for the dermatology patient in the communities we serve.
Our mission is to: seek to fund and promote education, research, and philanthropy to advance the field of dermatology.
The DPAF is pleased to begin accepting individual, small organization, and corporation donations. You may also explore our other opportunities for giving such as in-kind donations by contacting a DPAF staff member. These funds will go towards supporting the DPAF’s inaugural activities and strategic program activities. The DPAF will be accepting donations on site in Austin, Texas during the SDPA’s Annual Summer Dermatology Conference. A special Miles for Melanoma run and an Inaugural Silent Auction will be held in Las Vegas at the 14th Annual Fall Dermatology Conference.
