9th Annual American Dermoscopy Meeting

Join Us for the 9th Annual American Dermoscopy Meeting!

Dear Colleagues,

“I’m gonna be Iron, like a Lion in Zion”, sang Bob Marley, creating the metaphor of the Zion train as the path to heaven.

Zion National Park is certainly for those who want to nourish their souls, fueled by the sights of the verdant valleys and vermillion cliffs, canyoneering, epic bucket list hikes, or by simply relaxing with friends and family.

We invite you to attend the 9th annual American Dermoscopy Meeting (ADM) on July 15-18, 2020 at the Dixie Convention Center in St. George, UT, less than an hour’s drive from one of the State’s most popular and breathtaking parks.

The alarming rise in skin cancer incidence and escalating costs associated with treating advanced disease has underscored the importance of early detection. The pressures to detect skin cancer as early as possible provides the primary impetus that fuels the demand for dermoscopy education. However, besides being invaluable in skin cancer screening, dermoscopy has also proven beneficial in diagnosing and managing a myriad of other disorders ranging from inflammatory conditions to hair diseases to infestations. Dermatologists, family physicians, doctors of osteopathic medicine, internists, advanced practice providers, as well as members of other sub-specialties in medicine are eager to learn the benefits and insights provided by this technique. Those already acquainted with dermoscopy continuously seek ways to refine their skills.

The content of the 9th ADM will include information designed to benefit clinicians at all levels of dermoscopy training, from beginners to seasoned practitioners. Even returning attendees will benefit from significant variation in materials presented. While the majority of medical conferences are held in large metropolitan centers, the most scenic parts of the United States, its National Parks, remain names or images on our bucket list.

To address this, each year’s ADM takes place at a different US National Park – true masterpieces of nature that provide visitors with a myriad of outdoor activities to enjoy. We invite you to come and learn dermoscopy in an enjoyable, stimulating, interactive and relaxed environment while allowing your body and soul to get rejuvenated within breathtaking Zion National Park. This is your chance to cross the incredible Angels Landing or The Narrows hikes off your bucket list, enjoy the valley or night sky from Observation Point, or simply enjoy the vistas during a picnic with friends and family.

I look forward to meeting, interacting, laughing, hiking and enjoying life with you in the amazing canyons of Zion National Park in July 2020 at the 9th Annual American Dermoscopy Meeting.

With Warm Regards,

Ashfaq A. Marghoob, MD
