It is my pleasure to welcome you in our website, the website of the European Society for Pediatric Dermatology (ESPD). Since 1984, the ESPD has led continuing education in the specialty, and has evolved to become nowadays a strong and modern scientific society with fantastic achievements and a brilliant future ahead. New projects, including collaborative research in European countries, European training programs for fellows, mentoring of young colleagues, and educational grants are being developed and will become a reality in the nearest future. The celebration of an annual congress and other meetings in collaboration with other scientific societies promotes close interaction in both scientific and personal aspects.
All our achievements are the result of combined efforts of the ESPD Executive Board, the ESPD members, the professional management company C-IN and the ESPD partners including pharmaceutical companies. We should never forget that patients are the reason why the ESPD exists, and thus patients and patient associations are also a key part of the ESPD. In this website, all these actors may find a satisfactory interaction. Especially, the members of the ESPD, thanks to their supporting fees, may obtain important benefits.
The ESPD needs new members to keep on growing and provide even more opportunities and benefits for them. I encourage all dermatologists and pediatricians involved in the care of skin diseases of children to become part of this society. Especially, I make a call to the young colleagues who are attracted by the specialty and those who want to develop a career in Pediatric Dermatology
Our children are our future. Pediatric Dermatology is our passion. My predecessors have made impressive advances in the field, and the new Executive Board that I will be leading for the next two years is committed to continue this job, with the help of the ESPD members.
I do hope you can join us in this exciting project.
Dr. Antonio Torrelo
