Emblematic of her passion for working together to serve others, Dr. Connolly cited a favorite quote from Henry Ford as she assumed the presidency: "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success."

Under Dr. Connolly's exemplary leadership as Service Chair, the WDS conducted an award-winning community service outreach, Families Play Safe in the Sun, designed to educate, encourage and empower families to make sun safety a way of life. The 3-year, 15-city grassroots educational campaign was made possible by a generous grant from the 3M Foundation. Through this WDS Service project, nearly 400 WDS members across the nation have volunteered in communities where they work and live to educate the public about sun safety and provide free skin cancer screenings at large-scale events, reaching nearly 2 million people directly and creating 122 million media impressions. Thanks to a new grant from L'Oreal Foundation, the organization's efforts to educate the public about sun safety will continue through Play Safe in the Sun, geared for golf and tennis enthusiasts.

Dr. Connolly is an Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Mayo Clinic (Arizona). In addition to her various leadership roles in WDS, Dr. Connolly served as the 2006 President of the Pacific Dermatologic Association.

The Women's Dermatologic Society supports the careers and professional development of women dermatologists. The mission of the Women's Dermatologic Society is to help women in dermatology achieve their greatest personal and professional potential by striving to foster, promote, and support women's issues in dermatology; identify, train, and recognize women leaders in dermatology; provide a forum for developing relationships and the exchange of ideas and research relevant to women's issues; and promote the highest possible standards of ethics, research, patient care and education, as well as public education. WDS is comprised of more than 1,500 members nationally and internationally, representing all sub-specialties in dermatology and work in private practice, academics and research.
