)-- The Nevada Society for Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery (NSDDS) is pleased to announce it is the first state-focused incorporated organization established to grow the practice of dermatology and dermatologic surgery in the state of Nevada. NSDDS has chosen Solutions for Association Management, Inc. (SAMI) to manage its activities, membership and day-to-day operation.
NSDDS was founded in 2018 to fill a void in the state of Nevada for an organization dedicated to promoting the educational and professional interests of dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons; providing a vehicle for advocacy and public educational efforts on behalf of dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons and their patients; and addressing socioeconomic issues that impact the practice of dermatology and dermatologic surgery in the state of Nevada.
“I’m thrilled to help form and lead this new organization that truly is the missing piece to dermatology representation in the state of Nevada,” said NSDDS President and Founding Member Whitney Hovenic, MD. “We look forward to connecting dermatologists and their staff with one another to advocate on behalf of the profession and offering them continuing education opportunities. I encourage all dermatologists, licensed clinical staff, residents and medical students to apply for membership and contribute to the NSDDS Development Fund to support our growing Society.”
The NSDDS Development Fund was established in 2018 by the Skin Cancer and Dermatology Institute in Reno, Nevada, to ensure the formation, growth and success of NSDDS. Donations to the fund directly support the areas of administration, advocacy and website development.
