In her energized address to the largest luncheon crowd since this signature tradition began in 1974, Dr. Roberts cited the organization's phenomenal growth and remarked, "We are interested in your unique characteristics, and leveraging our diversity can lead to rich, fulfilling experiences...that can take this organization to the next level."

Under Dr. Roberts' leadership in her previous role as Vice President in 2008, WDS achieved a first for the profession by developing an unprecedented network television special about ethnic skin that was produced in collaboration with Al Roker Entertainment, called "America's Ethnic Skin: an Al Roker Health Special," which aired on NBC television stations in May, 2008. The program, which was recently recognized by the American Academy of Dermatology with the prestigious Gold Triangle Award, featured several WDS members sharing their expertise on the treatment of various ethnic skin conditions.

This community outreach service has since grown considerably to become an acclaimed national program reaching millions to educate about sun safety, currently presented to the public through the collaborative support of L'Oreal USA.
