The American Academy of Dermatology has announced that the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation is a 2009 recipient of its prestigious Gold Triangle Award given for its patient website, www.pemphigus.org. Will Zrnchik, Director of Communications, accepted the award on behalf of the IPPF at the AAD’s annual meeting in San Francisco in March of 2009.

In 2008 the IPPF won its first Gold Triangle and four MarCom Awards for its websites and newsletters.
