June has been a month to celebrate UW Dermatology clinical research, as news arrives our faculty were awarded two ICTR Pilot Awards, and a new paper was accepted for publication!
Congratulations to Drs. Molly Hinshaw, MD, and Margo Reeder, MD, for being selected for the American Academy of Dermatology 2020 Presidential Citation Awards!
During the COVID-19 global pandemic, pediatric dermatologists at UW Health and elsewhere saw a surge of red to purple bruise-like blisters and bumps on otherwise healthy children. Doctors soon hypothesized there could be a link between the painful purple blistered toes and COVID-19, so the term “COVID toes” was coined and began making headlines.
