Derm Day is Just Around the Corner – Save the Date

We are excited to announce the Agenda for our Second Annual Innovations in Dermatological Sciences Conference.  Make sure to mark your calendar! You don’t want to miss it! We look forward to seeing you at the Heldrich.

As we begin to enjoy the summer months with thoughts of vacations and days at the beach the staff of the CDR is busy making plans for the Second Annual Innovations in Dermatological Sciences Conference to be held on October 8, 2014 at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick. We expect this year’s event to be an even greater success than last year’s.
