As you may know, the SDPA had to make the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming 15th Annual Fall Dermatology Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico, due to the tragic hurricanes that have devastated the island. With the majority of the island still enduring the lack of electricity, unsafe roads and infrastructure, the SDPA and its philanthropic arm, The Dermatology PA Foundation (DPAF), have decided to unite and contribute to the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.

Olimometer 2.52DPAF and SDPA will each be matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 for a total combined match of $10,000.

One hundred percent of your contribution and the matching funds will go towards the nonprofit organization Americares. Americares specializes in emergency programs which prepare for and respond to natural disasters. Americares is on the ground in Puerto Rico delivering shipments of medicine and supplies, providing aid, and assessing the needs of health facilities in communities struggling to re-establish basic services. The organization has airlifted more than $3 million worth of medicine and supplies to Puerto Rico and the Dominica including antibiotics, wound-care supplies, intravenous fluids, mental health medications and treatments for chronic disease. Of funds donated to Americares, 97% will be used for relief efforts while only 3% will go to administrative fees and overhead charges.

Join the DPAF and SDPA in giving back to the Puerto Rican community as they continue their path to recovery. All contributions are tax-deductible. We will be accepting donations until November 12, 2017. Spread the word!
