The Arkansas Dermatological Society (ADS) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to assure dermatological expertise in Arkansas.  This is accomplished by providing medical education and aiding in the dissemination of new knowledge and techniques used in dermatology to its members.  The ADS promotes public education and raises public awareness of important dermatology issues within our communities.  Regularly scheduled meetings facilitate congeniality among the members and help share common issues in patient care and practice management.
