The Foundation for Dermatology Education hosts the fourth annual Revolutionizing Atopic Dermatitis (RAD) virtual conference on Sunday, June 13, 2021, from 9 am to 5 pm EST.

The global, multidisciplinary conference is dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of atopic dermatitis. The CME-accredited conference includes expert mini-symposiums led by clinical and research leaders, interactive sessions, and late-breaking research and virtual poster sessions.

The RAD Virtual Conference is open to dermatologists, allergists, pediatricians, internists, family practitioners, nurses and nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, as well as patients and parents, to learn more about the latest developments in atopic dermatitis.

“During this exciting and critical time for the AD community, we felt it was important to hold a conference that would focus exclusively on AD and the lessons that have accrued around proper diagnosis, treatment, and management.

“I believe now more than ever it is so important that we are able to come together and share what we have learned this past year about AD and emerging treatments so that we continue to make advances in the treatment of AD patients.”

— Dr. Jonathan Silverberg, MD, PhD, MPH, RAD Conference Chair

The morning portion of the conference kicks off with the Poster Viewing session (more than 40 in total), followed by an Industry Sponsored Session and the first symposium of the day, “Update on Atopic Dermatitis: What’s New?” The afternoon features the symposium, “So Many New Systemic Options, What to Do?” and a special topic session, “A Treatment Option for Patients with Uncontrolled Moderate-to-Severe Atopic Dermatitis.”

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and interact throughout the live Q&As and utilize the chat feature to message others attending the conference.
