Dr. Frederic Blum Visiting Professors
Duke Dermatology lost a great friend with the death of Dr. Fred Blum on October 17, 2008. Fred completed his residency in Dermatology at Duke in 1989 and practiced dermatology in Durham, most recently with Duke Dermatology graduates Drs. Lori Etter, Craig Heinly and Steve Higgins. Fred was committed to teaching and learning about dermatology. He was an active volunteer teacher at the Durham VA Medical Center and recruited other outstanding dermatologist to participate in our teaching program at the VA. Fred was also an enthusiastic participant in our monthly Duke/UNC Clinical Conferences, asking probing questions and relishing the camaraderie that is so typical of dermatology in our community.
In honor of Fred and his commitment to learning and dermatology we have established the Fred Blum Lectureship in Dermatology at Duke. Contributions to the Fred Blum Lectureship in Dermatology can be made by sending your tax deductible contributions to Duke Dermatology, Box 3135, Duke University Medical Center Durham, NC, 27710.
