Volunteer leaders from the Massachusetts Academy of Dermatology met with Congresswoman-elect Lori Trahan in December 2018 to discuss key issues affecting the practice of medicine, and the specialty of dermatology, in Massachusetts.

The Academy is looking forward to continuing the dialogue with Lori and her office about a wide range of issues, including venture capital, physician shortages, changes in medical staffing, the rising costs of prescription medicine, the importance of prevention and early detection of skin cancer, and regulatory issues, among others.

A special thank you to Congresswoman-elect Lori Trahan for her generous invitation to discuss these timely issues with her on behalf of all dermatologists in Massachusetts.
