This Month's Program

As the academic year comes to an end, we are planning an timely session for the June 2020 conference featuring a review of the intersection of dermatology and COVID-19.  Dr. Maria Tsoukas will be addressing various aspects of the coronavirus pandemic and how it has affected dermatology practices and patients in our area.  In addition, Dr. Amy Derick will provide an IDS report, including an update concerning the skin cancer screening program created by the Illinois legislature last year.

Meeting Format

Because of meeting restrictions currently in place due to the coronavirus public health situation, CDS is offering our guest lecture in the form of an online webinar.  This will be a 90-minute "live" session.  Participants will be able to ask questions verbally, and you will be able to hear the speaker through your computer or by telephone.  On the attendee computer screen during the webinar, you will see some "control icons," one of which is a hand.  To be recognized for a question, you'll just click on that hand icon and the moderator will un-mute your audio and you'll be able to ask your question.
CLICK HERE to register for the webinar (coming soon)... once you submit this form, an automated email will be sent with instructions about how to log-in at the time of the webinar.  PLEASE NOTE:  the link you receive to enter the webinar is unique to you.  Do not share it with anybody else since it allows for only one webinar log-in.
