DR. MARY LUPO NAMED ADVOCATE OF THE MONTH BY AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY ASSOCIATION

New Orleans, LA – May 10, 2013 – Mary P. Lupo, M.D., board certified dermatologist and clinical professor of dermatology at Tulane University School of Medicine, has been named an advocate for the month of May by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA).

In an article released by ASDSA, they said, “Kudos go to ASDSA and Louisiana Dermatological Society (LDS) member Mary P. Lupo, MD for her work on the ground to defeat a bill which would have allowed optometrists to perform ophthalmic surgery, including laser procedures in and around the eye. Dr. Lupo’s conversation with the bill sponsor about the importance of medical education, which cited an experience from her own life, was critical in convincing the State Representative to withdraw the bill from consideration. Dr. Lupo’s efforts are a great example of how personal contact and concrete examples from one’s own experience can make a difference.”
