We're celebrating our 2022 DRESS Heroes!

DRESS Hero is our annual awards event that celebrates medical professionals from around the world who excel at providing treatment and care for DRESS Syndrome patients.

In our 2022 inaugural event, individuals in our patient community nominated professionals who they feel made a difference in their or their loved one's life during their DRESS experience. From the UK to Peru to the US and beyond, nominations came in from around the world and included doctors, dermatologists, and more!

Here's an example of how one doctor made a difference for a DRESS patient:

"After being seen at the ER four different times, it took my body turning purple and liver failure before I was finally transferred to a Level One trauma center. Dr. Duran saved my life that night by being a compassionate and very astute physician who didn't dismiss his patient. He deserves all of the recognition possible."
