The Canadian Dermatology Association has a new president


This week, Dr. Catherine C. McCuaig took on a new role as president of the Canadian Dermatology Association.

Dr. McCuaig isn't new to leadership roles in this specialty. She was the president of the Society for Dermatology of Montreal for nine years, chaired the Atlantic Dermatology meeting in 2014 and co-chaired the Canadian Lymphedema Framework in 2013. 

She earned her medical doctorate from Queen's University in Kingston, Ont. and did her  residency training at University of Toronto, and dermatology at McGill University, with a pediatric fellowship in dermatology and laser under Dr. James Rasmussen at the University of Michigan.

"Through the pandemic, we have learned how privileged we are to live in Canada, thanks to its public health care system, and governments that aid those in need. Evermore, we have learned how important it is to support each other, and grow through the exchange of ideas, practical tips, and knowledge in dermatology,'' said Dr. McCuaig, in a press release. "In addition, I will work hard to help the CDA be more active on social media platforms, as well as help to promote our specialty to our colleagues, media and Canadian public.''

Her one-year term officially began June 28, 2021.
