American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) named Mark G. Lebwohl, MD as president-elect during the last day of its annual meeting on March 25. He will hold the office of president for one year.
 
“My position at the AAD will allow me to serve as an even more effective advocate for our patients,” said Dr. Lebwohl, Sol and Clara Kest Professor of Dermatology
and Chair of the Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Department of Dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “Quality patient care will be the focus of my presidency.”
 
Dr. Lebwohl completed residencies in internal medicine and dermatology at Mount Sinai and has been practicing dermatology since 1983. He has transformed Mount Sinai's Dermatology Department from a small group with a faculty of two, to one of the largest in the nation with more than 40 full-time faculty members and nearly 250 voluntary faculty members.
 
Chairman of the Medical Board of the National Psoriasis Foundation (term 2002-2014), Dr. Lebwohl is also the founding editor of Psoriasis Forum.  He has served on the editorial board of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and of the Journal of Skin Cancer and is editor of the Dermatology Section of Scientific American Medicine, now called ACP Medicine. 

Dr. Lebwohl has chaired numerous symposia and has written, edited, or co-edited more than 10 books including the first atlas devoted entirely to cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease, as well as the world’s leading book on dermatologic therapy, Treatment of Skin Disease. He has authored or co-authored over 500 publications including peer-reviewed articles, invited articles and book chapters.
