| Drs. Moise Levy & Jon Dyer present Dr. Paller with a |
gift of appreciation from FIRST
One hundred guests joined FIRST, as we proudly honored Amy S. Paller, MS, MD, at a Testimonial Dinner at the University Club of Milwaukee. As one of the most dedicated physicians on our Board of Directors and Medical & Scientific Advisory Board, Dr. Paller was so deserving of this honor. She has held many leadership positions within our organization over the past fifteen years, and has devoted a major part of her career to studying and treating patients affected with all forms of ichthyosis. It was be a privilege to honor her amongst her family, friends, and colleagues.
The event, raising nearly $50,000, was a spirited evening of guests mingling, touching speeches, and a special tribute video comprised of personal messages from students that had studied under Dr. Paller and consider her not only a remarkable person, but a lifelong mentor. Speakers for the evening included, Vice President of FIRST and a long-time friend and colleague, Dr. Moise Levy, along with Mary Williams, MD, Leonard Milstone, MD, Adelaide A. Hebert, MD, Joan Guitart, MD, Jon A. Dyer, MD, patients Laura Hogan & Shelley Trojanowski, and husband Etahn Cohen, Esq.
When speeches and tributes commenced, it was even more evident to everyone in the room, that they were amongst a uniquely gifted physician, researcher, friend and mother.
