Feb. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- Practical Dermatology® magazine is using social media for a cause. Bryn Mawr Communications III, LLC, publisher of Practical Dermatology® magazine, will donate 20 cents for every new Twitter follower from Jan. 31, 2014 through March 14, 2014* (up to $1,000) to Camp Discovery. Simply follow @Practical_Derm ( on Twitter to help support Camp Discovery, which just celebrated 20 summers of camp trips.

Camp Discovery offers a free camping experience to young people ages 8-16 who have chronic skin conditions. Every summer, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) sponsors six weeks of camp in five locations where campers can experience activities such as fishing, swimming, archery, horseback riding, nature trails, and other fun activities. Camp Discovery offers campers the chance to spend a week with peers who have similar skin conditions. Many counselors at the camp also have chronic skin conditions and provide support and advice to campers. The AAD offers this experience to about 380 children each year.

Because there is no fee for the campers, the AAD relies on volunteers and generous donations from its members, other organizations, and individuals to cover all costs, including transportation. According to the AAD, the success of the camp depends on dedicated dermatologists, nurses, and counselors who volunteer their time to ensure that the medical needs of each camper are met. If interested in volunteering to one of the 2014 camps, the 2014 volunteer application ( is now available through the AAD’s site.

Dermatologists who think a patient would benefit from attending Camp Discovery can fill out a referral form. Eligibility is determined upon recommendation by the child's dermatologist and approval by the Camp Discovery medical director.

In addition to supporting a children’s charity, those who follow @Practical_Derm ( will receive regular updates on Practical Dermatology® magazines fresh content, industry news from, videos for, and news, commentary, and insights on medical and cosmetic dermatology topics.
