The American Skin Association (ASA), founded in 1987, is the only volunteer-led health organization dedicated - through research, education and advocacy - to saving lives and alleviating human suffering caused by the full spectrum of skin disorders. Through its national grants and awards program, the ASA has given more than $4 million in recognition and support of research to promising physician/scientists and leading figures in the field, and to research centers at major institutions throughout the country. ASA helps raise the level of awareness among government decision makers regarding the need for additional funding for skin disease research, which today remains among the National Institutes of Health's lowest priorities.
