Free streaming broadcast: Sat June 23rd & Sun June24th
Great news for all of us in the vitiligo community around the world: by the time next Monday (25th June – #World-Vitiligo-Day 2018) arrives, we could find ourselves a lot better informed about current and future developments in #vitiligo-research and clinical care. I say this because we all have the opportunity to stream this year’s WVD conference by visiting this page on the University of Massachusetts Vitiligo Clinic and Research Center’s website.
Entitled Children, Research, and Hope for the Future, the conference will be hosted by the Director of the Centre Dr John Harris (you may have seen my previous blog post about Dr Harris) and Valarie Molyneaux the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of VITFriends and the programme will include presentations from a diverse and impressive list of guest speakers, drawn from the worlds of dermatology, pigmentation research, psychology, modelling, broadcasting, celebrity, business and even photography.
The live stream for the conference will be available at the following times (time zone: EasternDaylight Time / UTC/GMT-4)
If you do listen in, I feel certain that World Vitiligo Day 2018 will not only find you better informed, but uplifted and encouraged too. Although we may not always be aware of the fact, there is so much to celebrate and anticipate in the areas of vitiligo research, awareness and support. And this weekend is probably the best chance to date for us to feel part of this exciting progress.
