ADAM Names June McKernan “Practice Manager Of The Year”


The Association of Dermatology Administrators and Managers (ADAM) named June McKernan, Administrator, of Patient Preferred Dermatology of Los Alamitos, CA, the recipient of the organization's inaugural Practice Manager of the Year award. She was recognized at the ADAM annual meeting in Denver.

Ms. McKernan joined Patient Preferred Dermatology with its inception in 1989. She leads the professional development program for staff, including compliance, regulatory, and customer service training, as well as vendor relations and overseeing the practice's marketing efforts. She also has been an active member of ADAM for 15 years, and volunteers with the organization on a number of initiatives.

“June is a born leader - extremely intelligent, honest and creative,” wrote Laura King, MD, of Patient Preferred Dermatology, in her nomination letter. “She takes care of the practice as if it was her own. In fact, June single-handedly developed and implemented a comprehensive cosmetic program, which has grown over the past 25 years. It is a pleasure to come to work knowing my practice is in June's capable hands.”

The ADAM Practice Manager of the Year award, made possible in collaboration with CareCredit, recognizes dermatology professionals for their innovative thinking, business acumen and leadership qualities within their practice and their community.

"After reviewing a number of qualified candidates, our review committee recognized June's exceptional dedication to her practice, profession and community, which makes her the ideal recipient of our first Practice Manager of the Year award," said Pam Kroussakis, executive director, the Association of Dermatology Administrators and Managers.

As the 2014 award winner, Ms. McKernan receives a cash prize of $1,000, and a scholarship to attend the 2015 ADAM Conference, courtesy of CareCredit.
