APD Lowell Goldsmith Lectureship

The APD leadership is securing endowment funds from forward looking individuals to support our noble mission of preserving academic dermatology. In particular, we have begun to raise funds for the first APD named lectureship to recognize a renowned dermatology academician: Dr. Lowell A. Goldsmith. The purpose of this effort is to develop a fund to support a guest lecture by a national leader in fields such as medical education, health care, and research that are appropriate to the APD.
