PDA Annual Meeting Cancelled


After careful deliberation, the PDA Executive Committee has decided to cancel our 72nd Annual Meeting which was scheduled to be held July 30 – August 2 in San Francisco.  Holding a large, in-person gathering intended to draw participation from the Western US would be irresponsible and impractical as we all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and focus on getting back to safely seeing patients. We are disappointed that we will not be able to gather but are confident the decision is in the best interest of our membership and broader physician community.

Please be advised that the PDA will not be offering a virtual option as a replacement for our live meeting.  We plan to move back our high-quality 2020 program one year to be presented at our 2021 meeting in Lake Tahoe, California next August.    

If you already made travel plans for San Francisco:

  • Please call the hotel directly to cancel your reservation. The Palace Hotel can be reached at (800) 325-3589.
  • Contact your airline to cancel flights.  
  • Remember to cancel any rental cars or ground transportation.

We look forward to a time when it is safe to meet together again.   Thanks for your support and understanding  If you have any questions, please contact the PDA at info@pacificderm.org or (888) 388-8815.
