We are saddened by the news of the death of our dear friend, William L. Weston, MD. As we mourn his passing, we celebrate his life and the many contributions he made.
Bill Weston served as the Chair of the Department of Dermatology for 25 years. He was a founding father of the Society for Pediatric Dermatology and a leader in Pediatric Dermatology for over 50 years. He was an accomplished clinician and scholar. He authored over 300 publications, including seminal works on neonatal lupus and erythema multiforme.
Despite his myriad accomplishments, Bill was always humble and self-effacing. He modeled humanity in patient care and approached each patient with humility and curiosity. Most importantly, Bill Weston was a colleague, friend, mentor and role model for at least two generations of dermatologists and pediatric dermatologists. Supported by members of the department, Bill was recently awarded a University of Colorado medal to commemorate his service to medicine and the people of the State of Colorado. He will be greatly missed.
The University of Colorado has established a Pediatric Dermatology Endowed Fund in Honor of Dr. Weston that is now available for support.
The mission of the Department of Dermatology is to lead collaborative innovation in the understanding and treatment of dermatologic disease through excellence in patient care, education, research, and community engagement.
