The International Society of Dermatopathology (ISDP) was founded in 1979 by Helmut Kerl, MD; Gérald E. Piérard, MD; Jorge Sánchez, MD; and the late A. Bernard Ackerman, MD, who also served as the ISDP's first president.  The International Society of Dermatopathology, Inc, was incorporated in 1994, and classified as 501(c) (03) not-for-profit.

The aims and objectives of the ISDP are to increase knowledge of the structure and function of the skin and of diseases of the skin by microscopy. The Society intends to promote friendship and scientific exchanges among its members of different countries; to sponsor international and regional meetings; and to sponsor educational events.

 

Dear Colleagues,

 As indicated in our previous message we are closely monitoring the situation in Boston and at our hotel in anticipation of our upcoming meeting March 23-24, 2022.  Please see below the latest information from our hotel:

 In the City of Boston, starting on January 15, 2022, attendees will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend events in indoor event space. Full dose of vaccine would be required based on the timeframe of your event. Employees working in those locations will also be required to have received their vaccines. Also on a related note, individuals would be required to show proof of vaccination to dine at hotel’s restaurants and to utilize the fitness center at the hotel, as well as any of those locations in the City of Boston. 

 This mandate is in addition to the mask mandate which is still in effect in all indoor event space in the City of Boston. Attendees would be able to remove their face coverings when they are eating or drinking while seated. 

 There will be signage throughout the hotel in all public areas. The hotel would have a supply of masks on hand and can provide them as needed to those who may have forgotten to bring their masks. The hotel is maintaining an increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of shared items and high-touch surfaces throughout the day, while deep cleaning each night. Guest sanitation stations are also provided in public areas. 

 Therefore if you have registered for the meeting or plan to register, and you plan to attend the meeting in Boston, please scan and email a copy of your vaccination documentation to [email protected] prior to the meeting.  

 As a reminder, if you have not already done so, you may register for the March meeting on our website -
