    (Virtual) Didactic Meeting Hosted by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Dermatology Program

    NEDS continues to support the continuing education of New England-based dermatologists and other healthcare professionals specializing in dermatology, including dermatology residents. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 Virus and its restrictions on 'live' meeting attendance, this didactic meeting will be a virtual one, held in real time using ZOOM meeting technology. We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to your virtual participation, which includes the option to ask questions of our presenters and to participate in polls.

    Meeting registration is NOW OPEN.  Meeting updates and details on Zoom Meeting participation will be posted as they become available.
