Highlighting a Partner Non-Profit
American Skin Association (ASA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission for 36 years has been to advance dermatological research, champion skin health, and drive public awareness about skin cancer and other skin-related diseases. ASA, who received GuideStar’s 2023 Platinum Seal of Transparency and Charity Navigator’s Four-Star Rating, is a registered charity in the State of Florida, and works to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those suffering from dermatological diseases.
ASA’s Chairman Howard P. Milstein, and the Milstein family, have been active in the Florida business and philanthropic communities for many years. Howard, who founded the Sarasota Private Trust Company in 2019, has a vast legacy of philanthropic generosity towards advancing medical research and health care around the world. Howard recently acquired Golf Magazine, and its affiliates, growing his reach in the golfing world, a community that is close to the hearts of many who reside in Florida.
In 2021, ASA announced the opening of a Consumer Health Center in Sarasota to serve the local community. The center will provide vital skincare information to Floridians, who enjoy over 300 days of sunshine per year and understand all too well the devastating damage the sun can do. ASA also aims to aid in the education of youth on the importance of skin health and sun safety from an early age to prevent future harm.
Overseeing ASA’s Florida efforts is an incredibly decorated team made up of John Hart, President, and CEO of SPTC, Eric Kaplan, Esq., ASA board member and SPTC Director and R. Dean Hautamaki, MD, FCCP, FACP, the organization’s newly named Senior Medical Advisor – Florida. Notably, Dr. Hautamaki is Chief of Internal Medicine for Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Assistant Clinical Professor at Florida State College of Medicine, and Chair of the University of Florida College of Medicine Leadership Council.
