Our thoughts are with the friends we’ve made in the Virgin Islands over the last two years. We pray for them and their families as they heal from the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.
We will support our friends at Marriott Frenchmans Reef by holding the meeting at this property in Winter 2019. The resort is temporarily closed until all the repairs are completed from the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma. Virgin Derm meeting will also be undergoing renovation with some exciting changes. These include more focus on non-surgical aesthetic enhancement for the face and body. We are working on a new format which includes more patient demonstrations and opportunities for greater faculty interaction through small group workshops.
Look for details in the coming months for the next meeting in early 2019! Keep tuned to this website.
