The American Society of Dermatopathology (ASDP) has been admitted to the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates as of June 13, 2016. ASDP was represented by Melissa Piliang, MD, a member-at-large on the ASDP Board of Directors. Dr. Piliang has served as ASDP’s liaison to the AMA during the last four years while ASDP was a member of the AMA’s Specialty Service Society (SSS).
"This is an important achievement for our society,” said Dirk Elston, MD, president of the ASDP. “We finally have a seat at the table and our own voice in the house of medicine. Dr. Piliang has been an outstanding representative for ASDP and she will play a vital role for us moving forward."
