Inviting you to nominate a project for the
Canadian Dermatology Association's

Public Education Awards Program

The 2006 Awards will be presented for projects
completed in calendar year 2005.

Deadline: February 5, 2006


The Canadian Dermatology Association's Media and Public Education Awards Program publicly 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 our media and other organizations that disseminate information to the public, thus increasing awareness of disease prevention, where possible, and proper care of skin diseases by Canada's dermatologists.

Call For Entries 2006 is available on CCNMatthews' website at the following address: http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/cdapublic_eng.pdf

The Canadian Dermatology Association, founded in 1925, represents Canadian dermatologists.
