FIRST held a Testimonial Dinner on March 5, the eve of the AAD meeting in Miami, Florida. This year's honorees were Dr. Phillip Frost and Dr. Gerald Weinstein.

Drs. Frost and Weinstein were early pioneers in the field of ichthyosis. Because of their initial research focus on epidermal biology, they were important advocates for patients with skin diseases. Their efforts laid the building blocks for other investigators to make advances in the study of ichthyosis, which paved the way to find better treatments and eventual cures. Drs. Frost and Weinstein's efforts helped to improve the quality of life of our members, and FIRST is proud to honor and recognize their invaluable service to the ichthyosis community.

Held in the beautiful Starlight Room at the Miami Beach Resort, sixty-five people were in attendance to pay tribute to Drs. Frost and Weinstein. The evening featured poignant tributes by friends, colleagues, and patients of the researchers. The event was a tremendous success, raising $90,000 for FIRST, its programs, and services.
