The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) is the only national organization in the United States specifically dedicated to the field of Pediatric Dermatology.
The Society's objective is to promote, develop, and advance education, research, and care of skin disease in all pediatric age groups. The organization holds meetings twice a year to educate physicians about advances in pediatric dermatology, help them support children with dermatological diseases, and improve their care.
SPD's COVID-19 Patient Perspectives handout is now available in English and Spanish. The Society also released a new member survey on COVID-19 Acral Ischemia/Perniosis in Children.
