In Reply We thank Drs Mundluru and Lee for their thoughtful response to our Viewpoint titled “Geriatric Dermatology—A Framework for Caring for Older Patients With Skin Disease.”1 We agree that we need to create practical collaborations that simultaneously support increased knowledge of dermatology in the field of geriatrics while also broadening the knowledge and application of geriatrics in the field of dermatology. We share a common goal—to improve the care of older adults with skin disease. Collaboration is essential. We support the proposed approach to improving the content of dermatology in geriatrics fellowships.
