FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Humberto C. Antunes,  Galderma  worldwide CEO, will receive a "Lifetime in Dermatology Achievement Award" from the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology (JDD) at the upcoming Orlando Dermatology Aesthetic & Clinical Conference (ODAC). The event is January 17-20, 2014, at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Florida.

Galderma was elected to receive the prestigious JDD Leaders of Distinction Award and chosen as the Leader of Distinction for the "Lifetime in Dermatology Achievement Award." 

"Galderma is one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies in dermatology, and also one of the most generous, much of which would not be possible without Humberto Antunes' leadership, dedication and philanthropy to the industry," said Dr. Robins, ODAC Conference Chair Emeritus and Professor Emeritus of Dermatology at New York University School of Medicine.   

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Humberto for many, many years and in that vein, it gives me great pleasure to honor him with the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology 'Lifetime in Dermatology Achievement Award,' and know that he will continue to positively shape the future of dermatology," added Dr. Robins. 

"I will be truly honored to receive the 'Lifetime in Dermatology  Achievement Award' in person at the ODAC meeting on January 17 and I accept it on behalf of 5,000 very deserving Galderma employees worldwide," said Antunes.

Following the receipt of the award, Antunes will also serve as the ODAC key note speaker, presenting his vision of the "Future of Dermatology" and addressing questions from 400 healthcare professionals.
