The DIGA blog is a new addition to the national Dermatology Student Interest Group website! This purpose of the DIGA blog is to unite student dermatology interest groups across the nation and allow DIGs to communicate in an easy effective manner.

Is the dermatology interest group at your school having a skin screening, hosting a dermatology fundraiser or giving a skin protection presentation to teenage students?

If you would like to share what your DIG is planning or what your DIG accomplished this semester please email blog@derminterest.org and have your school featured on our blog!

Also please help us improve the blog and make it meet your needs by giving us feedback on what you'd like to see, as well as suggestions for improvements (or critiques).
