Brenda Dintiman, M.D.I first heard about the Academy’s volunteer teledermatology project by chance when I happened to sit next to Bill James, MD, at a legislative meeting a few years ago. He was working on a telemedicine project, along with Carrie Kovarik, MD, and some other members, and asked me if I was interested in participating. I was, and I kept following up with him until the Academy’s pilot program launched in September 2010. This pilot program later became AccessDerm.
