Ever since 1997, the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) has designated November “National Healthy Skin Month,” emphasizing the importance of good skin care; sharing tips that can lead to healthier skin, hair, and nails; and asking Americans to pay attention to their skin and adopt healthy habits. After all, everyone needs good skin care – from newborns to centenarians! This year, AAD is spotlighting unsafe skin care trends, which are unfortunately getting widespread attention on social media and elsewhere. Specifically, Board-certified dermatologists are urging people to avoid performing cosmetic treatments at home, such as microneedling or laser treatments; trying nasal tanning spray; using hot peppers to make lips fuller; starting or stopping supplements randomly; and skipping sunscreen.
CME Conferences Focused on Dermatology
At Skin, Bones, Hearts & Private Parts, a leading provider of online CME and CME Conferences for physicians, physician assistants (PAs), and nurse practitioners (NPs), we’ve made dermatology a foundation of our curriculum since day one, along with cardiology, orthopedics, women’s health, pharmacology, pain management, diabetes, ER, mental health and more. All nine of our in-person CME conferences in 2024 feature day-long, dedicated dermatology programming, ensuring what can be a complex topic gets the focus it needs. Topics include melanoma awareness; facial dermatologic complaints – on the rise with the use of videoconferencing; common tinea infections; conditions that cause itchiness; topical therapies and routine skin care; bites and stings; and more. Participants can earn up to 6.5 CME Credit hours and 2.0 APRN for the full-day dermatology-focused days and up to 39 for the entire four-day conferences.
All of our programming is taught by engaging thought leaders, with past attendees of our derm-focused CME courses sharing, “I learned a lot of dermatology material I was previously unaware of” … “I feel more confident in being able to diagnose and treat adult and pediatric skin conditions, identify when it is appropriate to refer to dermatology, and recognize cancerous skin lesions” … and, “This class made derm a little easier!”
Check it out for yourself: Register for an in-person 2024 CME Conference, always in locations where you can combine earning CME credits alongside much-earned rest and relaxation.
