During the event, AID announced they had made a very generous donation of $50,000 to The Magic Wand Initiative, a charity created by renaissance man Rox Anderson, MD. Anderson, both a doctor and inventor, focused his creative efforts during his time at Harvard Medical School in Boston. Dr. Anderson has already devised and employed many innovations in the field of dermatology, and hopes this initiative will yield similar success.
The donation aims to aid the development of a diagnostic tool to more properly diagnose the condition “Cellulitis,” a commonly misdiagnosed skin infection caused by bacteria. Cellulitis is often misdiagnosed as psoriasis, another more commonly known chronic skin condition. While they have similar symptoms, their causes and treatments are vastly different.
The initiative utilizing the donation is led by Daniela Kroshinsky, MD, MPH. Dr. Kroshinsky is an assistant professor in dermatology, Harvard Medical School, and Director of Pediatric Dermatology and Director of Inpatient Dermatology, Education and Research, at Massachusetts General Hospital and MassGeneral Hospital for Children.
PC was happy to represent both of these companies during their critical partnership, and we hope the best for their initiative and advances in dermatology!
