Educational Information at IDS Meetings and Conferences


The Illinois Dermatological Society was established as a not-for-profit corporation in Illinois to serve the needs of dermatologists in the state with regard to education, practice management and advocacy.  The Society is governed by a board of directors comprised of dermatologists who are IDS members.  Day-to-day functions are managed by an executive director employed by the Society.
