Call for Entries - Canadian Dermatology Association's 2013 Public Education
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.
Entries may be submitted in the following categories: Media, Not-for-Profit
organizations or Industry
Full details about the award criteria and submission information are available
on the Association website.
Entries must be received by February 5, 2013. All winners will be notified
by June 1, 2013. The awards will be presented at CDA's annual conference in
Quebec City, Quebec on June 30, 2013.
