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. Eligibility Entries may be submitted in the following categories: Media, Not-for-Profit organizations or Industry To Enter Full details about the award criteria and submission information are available on the Association website.
