“It should be entertaining,” said Oliver Wisco, DO, FAAD, convention speaker, of his Healthcare Evolution and the Impact of ACO’s (Accountable Care Organizations) on Dermatology seminar scheduled for Sunday, April 7 at 9:00 AM.

No matter your position within your office, your political view point, or any reservations you might have toward the healthcare reform, Dr. Wisco helps you prepare your office for the changes the reform will bring. Dr. Wisco encourages everyone should attend his seminar.

“By understanding the importance of the American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) quality initiatives, the learner is more skilled in developing their practice both for better patient care and to navigate the changes of healthcare reform,” said Dr. Wisco.

Stay ahead of the curve by beginning your office’s preparations today to keep quality performance among your staff. Gain an understanding of the changing landscape of healthcare, with emphasis on the Accountable Care Organization.

Patients should continue to receive the very best in care and Dr. Wisco’s seminar will give you the steps to take to ensure an improved patient-doctor (nurse) experience. “It is clear that medicine must continuously improve not only in our science, but also in our delivery of care methods to ensure our patients receive the best care possible,” said Dr. Wisco.

Dr. Wisco will also present a session entitled High-Risk Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma on Saturday, April 6 at 4:00 PM.

Did you know one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime? Become skin cancer savvy during DNA Convention speaker Dr. Elizabeth McBurney’s Common Skin Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment session on Friday, April 5, 8-9 AM.

Dr. McBurney urges all professionals to attend her session because skin cancer occurs more often than you think. Actually, it occurs in the US more often than any other kind of cancer combined.

“Non-melanoma skin cancer represents the most frequently observed malignancy among Caucasians,” said Dr. McBurney. “It is vital that all dermatology professionals, regardless of their position, know how to correctly identify, diagnose and treat these cases and above all, educate its prevention.”

Non-melanoma skin cancer can be easily diagnosed and treated in the office in most cases. “Attendees will acquire the ability to have a heighted awareness of types of skin cancers and their treatments,” said Dr. McBurney. “This knowledge will allow them to deliver better care and information to their patients.”

Make sure you secure your seat to learn the latest in skin cancer treatment and diagnosis by registering today! You don’t want to miss the message or the techniques.

Much like the convention’s host city, Louisiana is rich with food, culture and things to do all along the state’s beautiful coast. Extend your stay or make a pit stop on the way home to one of the many great attractions that neighbor New Orleans.

Baton Rouge:
Let out your inner “kidd” while in the capitol by visiting USS Kidd and Museum on the Mississippi River. Feeling more mature? Let your “Van-Gogh” go by visiting the über-contemporary Shaw Center for the Arts.

Gulf Coast of Louisiana:
For those looking for a little R&R or the next great adventure, the Gulf coast of Louisiana has what you’re looking for. St. Bernard Parish is only a few miles from New Orleans and is home to scenic shore towns such as Shell Beach. Sit back, relax and enjoy the surrounding southern charm.

If the outdoors is your thing, hike on over to Big Branch Nature Preserve or Northlake Nature Center in St. Tammany Parish. Want to kick it up a notch, modeling after Louis and Clark? Jefferson Parish is the place to go. Here, you can find everything from a flourishing nature trail to a daring, deep-water excursion.

On the way home:
Cheaha Mountain has great trails and breathtaking views. A little over six hours from New Orleans, Cheaha Mountain has cabins for overnight stays with great trails and breathtaking views-perfect for a quick overnight stop on your way home from convention.

“Can’t help falling in love” with Louisiana? Mississippi has just as much to see, including the “King’s” hometown. Tupelo is five hours from New Orleans and will get all Elvis Presley fans “all shook up” with excitement.

Enjoy Mississippi’s coast with a day at the water park, or hop on a ferry out to Ship Island and relax on its beautiful beaches. The coast calls to art and cultural enthusiasts too with its great art museums and historic locales. 

Whatever you do, enjoy your down time while staying in New Orleans!

The holidays are right around the corner and although for many it means family, food and festivities, it can also mean spending a lot of money. Purchasing gifts for your loved ones (and maybe even your not-so-loved-ones) can often determine how your extra money is spent.
DNA is very aware of this dermatology-dilemma and offers a solution. Many of you work in clinics and practices. Attending the DNA Convention directly benefits your place of business but more importantly, your patients. But does your doctor or supervisor even know that this opportunity is available to you?
Approaching them to request that they help “support your way to DNA” is now easier than ever. At the bottom of the convention registration page are two resources that you can use when requesting support. One is a letter from you that you can customize. The second is a letter from DNA President Trudy Adamson, outlining all the benefits of sending employees to the annual convention. Both can be given to your doctor asking that they assist you in making your way to DNA!
