Dermatology Day

Emory Dermatology Day was started over 25 years ago in order to provide an opportunity to blend clinical dermatology with new areas of investigation relevant to practitioners of our specialty. In addition to the series of interesting talks given by Emory Faculty members on a broad array of stimulating and informative topics, the Robert and Patricia Fine Lecture is also given each year which honors an outstanding clinician and investigator who has significantly advanced our understanding of skin diseases and cutaneous biology. 

 

The Annual Robert and Patricia Fine Lecture

This annual lecture has been endowed through the generosity of Robert and Patricia Fine and it is a symbol of their commitment to excellence. It honors outstanding clinicians and investigators who have significantly advanced our understanding of skin diseases and cutaneous biology.
