In an effort to curb acne bullying in schools, DermCheck Dermatology partnered with PACER and Not In Our Town, two non-profit organizations, to promote National Bullying Prevention Month. DermCheck offered free dermatology consultations to anyone in California struggling with acne, especially high school students. "The goal is to end acne in high schools. Less acne means less bullying, which means more self-confidence," explains Ben Behnam, M.D. By offering a free dermatology visit, students in California used the service to see an online dermatologist and get prescriptions sent electronically to their pharmacy.
