The Monthly Final Page: skINsight

In the July 2003 issue of the Archives, the skINsight section was introduced. It was the idea of the editor at that time, Kenneth A. Arndt, MD. When Dr Arndt first called me about his idea, he described an interest in using the last page of the journal for something different, something brief in text but loaded with imagery. He pointed out that dermatology was a visual specialty and the last page should be a National Geographic, if you will, for dermatology. Our hope was that the imagery presented would encourage thought and potentially motivate research. The name of the section was not immediately clear, but after much pondering, skINsight came into being. Conceptually, “sight” worked because the section was to be visual. “Skin” worked for obvious reasons. But it was “insight” that was the key, in that we hoped the reader would be enlightened to some degree. Thus, skINsight was born.
