A Letter from the Editors

Main Article Content

Editorial Team



Welcome to Volume 2, Issue 1 of SKIN: The Journal of Cutaneous MedicineTM. We thank you, the readership of SKIN, for all of your feedback and suggestions. As a journal made by dermatologists for dermatologists, we are constantly looking for ways to implement new features aimed at serving the needs of the dermatology community.

Our featured article is selected by the editorial team due to the timeliness and pertinence of the information provided within. We are pleased to announce the featured article for Volume 2, Issue 1, “Risk Factors for the Development of Acute Radiation Dermatitis in Breast Cancer Patients” by Jennifer Parker, MD, et. al. We believe that this article will provide practical information for the practicing dermatologist.

One of our goals at SKIN is to incorporate the use of technology in order to aid in the widespread dissemination of dermatologic knowledge. With this spirit in mind, we are excited to announce the inclusion of 2 videos of CME lectures presented at the 2017 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference®. This issue includes two such videos: “What’s New in the Medicine Chest, Part 2” by James Del Rosso, DO, and “The Newest in Dermatology” by Joshua Zeichner, MD. 

 The Editors of SKIN hope that you will find the knowledge contained in this issue to be of value. As always, we look forward to your thoughts and ideas of how we can continue to make SKIN optimize its value to you.
