American Academy of Dermatology Recognizes Dr. Del Rosso's Contributions with Honorary Membership
Online, March 15, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology of Las Vegas is proud to announce that his colleague and practice associate, James Q. Del Rosso, DO, has been honored by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) with an award for lifetime achievement for his vast contributions to the field of dermatology. This singular honor was bestowed upon Dr. Del Rosso on March 3, 2016 during the association's annual meeting in Washington D.C. and confers upon him an Honorary Membership with the AAD. This great honor was bestowed upon Dr. Del Rosso for his over twenty five years of consistent contributions to dermatology education, clinical research, medical publications, and patient care.
The AAD is one of the most prestigious and largest dermatology organizations in the entire world. Founded in 1938, the AAD represents nearly all of the practicing dermatologists in the United States, as well as a growing contingent of international dermatologists. An AAD member since 1986, with this lifetime achievement award, Dr. Del Rosso joins the 158 Honorary Membership winners that have been similarly awarded since 1939 for their lifetime of valuable contributions to the specialty.
All of these efforts have been a labor of love and dedication that I have felt committed to from the start of my professional career, and the passion behind this commitment remains as strong as when it first started.
Dr. James Q. Del Rosso is an internationally renowned educator and invited speaker, has published many articles in recognized dermatology journals, and is co-editor of the textbook, Acne Vulgaris. He has served as a past president of the American Acne & Rosacea Society, the American Society for Mohs Surgery, and the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology. He also founded the Scientific Panel for Antibiotic Use in Dermatology in 2005, which has had several meetings and authored articles, under his direction, in scientific publications to guide clinicians on optimal antibiotic use.
Of this lifetime achievement award from the AAD, Dr. Del Rosso says, "I am incredibly honored and humbled that the American Academy of Dermatology has conferred upon me an Honorary Membership for my work over the years in the field of dermatology. All of these efforts have been a labor of love and dedication that I have felt committed to from the start of my professional career, and the passion behind this commitment remains as strong as when it first started. This is truly one of the proudest moments of my life. I wish to thank all the members of the AAD for their consideration and kind recognition of my efforts, and my family and closest friends for their understanding and patience as the work involved consumes countless hours spent away from them."
Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology of Las Vegas adds, "I cannot begin to express the admiration that I and our entire staff have for Dr. Del Rosso for receiving this tremendous honor from the American Academy of Dermatology. The AAD only selects a few people per year to receive an Honorary Membership and to have one your colleagues that you regularly work alongside selected for such an honor is incredible. Dr. Del Rosso has dedicated decades of his life to dermatology, and all of us at Lakes Dermatology are extremely proud to see his dedication rewarded with a lifetime achievement award from the AAD. He works daily to expand our knowledge in dermatology, such as being the research director and principal investigator for Del Rosso Dermatology Research and being editor-in-chief of the Journal of Clinical Aesthetic Dermatology since it was founded in 2005. It's almost as if rarely sleeps as he's constantly working and researching. I'm incredibly proud to know him both personally and professionally, and he is extremely deserving of such a distinguished reward."
