Dr. Tan was in Calgary on June 30th, where he received The Dermatologist of the Year Award from the Canadian Skin Patient Alliance. Dr. Tan was honoured with the award at the Canadian Dermatology Association’s annual conference. The award was presented in recognition of his work in supporting the goals of the Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada in education and in public outreach. Another initiative was in developing patient decision aids to help patients understand treatment options in acne and in psoriasis.
Dermatologists and researchers from across the country convened at the CDA conference to learn about the latest research and clinical approaches, optimize practice areas of interest, and network with the dermatology community.
Dr. Tan would like to acknowledge the contributions of his research assistants, office staff, and most importantly, patients, in these efforts.
