FAD 2023-2024 Resident Advisory Board Co-Chairs:

Caresse Gamret, MD

University of Miami School of Medicine

Hello and welcome to the Florida Academy of Dermatology. I grew up in Naples, Florida and then attended undergrad, medical school, and residency at the University of Miami. I am thrilled and honored to represent residents for the FAD, a society that very much invests in its resident members. I have a passion for dermatology and dermatologic surgery and cannot imagine working in another field. I hope to be an advocate for dermatology residents and the field of dermatology at large. Being an active member of a well-organized professional society can be wonderfully fulfilling both professionally and socially and I urge everyone to become involved.

Sara Holt, DO

Largo Medical Center

Hello, my name is Sara Holt and I am a chief dermatology resident at HCA Largo Hospital. I am originally from the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado, where I completed my medical school training. Trading in the mountains for the sunny Florida beaches has strengthened my passion for sun protection! Serving as an advocate for Florida dermatologists and their patients as well as promoting resident education is very important to me and I hope to spread this enthusiasm in my FAD leadership position!
