Call for Entries - Canadian Dermatology Association's 2013 Public Education Awards

Call for Entries - Canadian Dermatology Association's 2013 Public Education 
Awards 
OTTAWA, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Dermatology Association's Media and 
Public Education Award acknowledges the role played by the media and 
not-for-profit organizations in furthering the understanding of dermatologic 
issues and encouraging healthy behaviour in the medical, surgical and cosmetic 
care of skin, hair and nails. 
Diseases of the skin, hair and nails can cause their sufferers numerous 
symptoms, ranging from embarrassment and depression to sometimes-fatal 
illnesses. Such diseases can also be so visible that social interaction with 
others can be as painful as the physical symptoms. This is why CDA wishes to 
highlight the role of the media and other organizations that disseminate 
information to the public, thus increasing awareness of skin disease 
prevention, where possible, and proper management and treatment of diseases of 
the skin, hair and nails by Canada's dermatologists.
