In Coeur d’Alene, the air is fresh, the water is inviting and the quaint city offers an abundance of fun, unique family-friendly activities. Coeur d’Alene has all of the amenities of a larger city but retains the friendly charm of small-town America. The centerpiece is Lake Coeur d’Alene, 25 miles of pure, blue water lined with pine-studded hills, once named by National Geographic as one of the five prettiest lakes in the world. Just off the lake, enjoy the charming downtown district offering something for everyone. Friendly business owners welcome you to enjoy the more than 100 unique shops, restaurants, art galleries, and coffee houses scattered throughout downtown.


The SPD's 40th Annual Meeting will feature general plenary sessions with both practical and cutting-edge talks on a wide range of medical and surgical pediatric and dermatologic topics. In addition, the Annual Meeting will include oral presentations of selected abstracts, poster sessions and networking receptions.

The SPD Annual Meeting is the annual cornerstone meeting for healthcare professionals with an interest in the care of children with skin disease. In 2013, over 350 health care professionals attended this meeting, including academic pediatric dermatology opinion leaders, clinical pediatric dermatologists, general dermatologists, pediatricians, family physicians, as well as medical extender physician assistants, and nurse practitioners and trainees (fellows, residents, and medical students). Annual Meeting participants include not only professionals from North America but also from academic and clinical programs all over the world.

Travel awards are now available on a competitive basis to fellows, residents, and medical students who present cases (Cases of the Year) or posters at the SPD Annual Meeting.
