Skin. It defines us and tells our stories. Throughout history, artists, painters, sculptors, photographers and filmmakers have passionately created the “art of skin.” And if there’s one thing we’ve learned over time, it’s that all skin is beautiful. That’s why we're hosting the Art of Skin Gala Sponsored by Janssen Biotech, Inc., a live, in color celebration of diversity, equity, and inclusion brought to life through the beauty of skin.

Brought to you by the Chicago Dermatological Society.

To benefit Horizons for Youth, High Jump, Diversity Mentorships and CDS Leadership Endowments.

This sensually captivating live event will help support education for youth in underserved communities of color.

High Jump

Established in 1989, High Jump seeks to bring equity to education for Chicago middle school students who have exhibited ambition and potential and who are of limited financial means. It provides an environment where students receive academic enrichment, socialemotional skills training and high school counseling with the goals of sending its participants to superior college preparatory schools. High Jump is a two-year, tuition free academic enrichment program for seventh and eighth graders in Chicago. Ninety-eight percent are youth of color and 95% attend Chicago Public schools.

Horizons for Youth

Founded in 1990, its mission is to transform the life of a child by providing targeted resources, rooted in education, in trusting partnership with their family and community. It is Chicago’s only organization providing a comprehensive suite of wraparound services and tuition scholarships for children at both the elementary and high school levels, with continued academic and socio-emotional support through college. Horizons for Youth students are 50% African American, 41% Latino, and 9% Bi-racial or other ethnicities from 36 neighborhoods, primarily on the west and south sides of Chicago.

A    Message

from the President and Vice President of the Chicago Dermatological Society

Dermatologists are inherently visual people. Our lives are spent observing skin and its nuances. So, we are very much looking forward to hosting an event that will feature strikingly memorable visual experiences, as well as musical, dance, and culinary delights.

This event will help improve educational advancements in many communities of color in our beautiful city. Not only will we provide grants to two respected nonprofit organizations that support STEM education and mentorship in underserved communities, but we will mentor four medical students from underrepresented communities. This will be done through diversity in dermatology internships with CDS mentors. We will recognize four individuals who have benefited our society and the Chicago community as well. And a portion of the gala proceeds will also contribute funds to the named Lectureship Endowments of the CDS.

We look forward to a celebration of diversity, equity and inclusion brought to life through the beauty of skin.

So please join us!

The Board of Directors of the Chicago Dermatological Society announces a four- week mentorship program for four medical students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. This unique opportunity to learn from mentors in established dermatology practices in the Chicago area will take place in June 2022. This is a National Call for Applications, and each Mentee will receive an honorarium of $2,000. This program is funded from proceeds from CDS’s “The Art of Skin Gala” that will be held on June 10, 2022. Mentors and Mentees will be introduced at the Gala.

The American Medical Association has identified workplace diversity as a key goal. Medical students from underrepresented minorities identify a lack of access to adequate mentoring when facing career decisions as a major challenge. This mentorship opportunity provides shadowing and experiential learning opportunities, observing and interacting with positive role models, developing communication skills, and acquiring insights into dermatology and its subspecialities.

For this Call for Applications, we use the acronym DURM (Dermatology Underrepresented in Medicine) and its definitions.

About us

The purpose of the Chicago Dermatological Society (CDS) is to educate its members and guests (medical residents and students) in dermatology and its subspecialties. learn more...
