Impressive progress has been made in managing and treating atopic dermatitis (AD) within the past few years, and I believe this is just the beginning. Efforts from the dermatology and allergy communities, along with the commitment from industry, have led to improved outcomes for many patients, but misconceptions still abound, and there is still so much to learn and build upon. In addition, there is a major need for a state-of-the-art, evidence-based, and multidisciplinary forum for AD management.
During this exciting and critical time for the AD community, I felt it was important to hold a CME-accredited conference that would focus exclusively on AD and the complex information that has accrued around proper diagnosis, treatment, and management. Therefore, I am excited to announce the Inaugural Revolutionizing Atopic Dermatitis (RAD) Conference, which will be held in April 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. I hope you choose to attend and support this novel, global meeting. We are confident it will continue and grow for years to come!
