ACDS

American Contact Dermatitis Society

The American Contact Dermatitis Society (ACDS) was founded in 1989 and has grown from a small dedicated group of dermatologists focused on contact dermatitis to over 1,000 health care professionals in the field of allergic contact dermatitis and related inflammatory skin diseases. The objectives of this Society are to promote, support, develop and stimulate information about contact dermatitis and occupational skin disease; to provide a forum for the exchanging of this information; to promote the education of physicians by encouraging courses in contact dermatitis, occupational dermatology and other related topics at scientific meetings and dermatology training centers, and to promote investigative research into these fields.
