The first issue of Skin & Allergy News, now Dermatology News, was published in January 1970. One front-page story highlighted the "continued improvement and more widespread use of steroids" as the most important development of the 1960s in dermatology. Another covered the launch of a national program for dermatology "to design a pattern for its future instead of simply drifting and letting its fate be determined by others."
