Message from the President
When we conceived the idea of bringing the 3rd Master Class on Vitiligo to Brazil we immediately had the enthusiastic support of the executive board of Brazilian Society of Dermatology, as well as the support of other presidents of international societies such as: WHA, VRF, EADV and CILAD.
Since then we have been working tirelessly in the organization of this event, which will represent new achievements in national and global dermatology. Our commitment is to offer participants the chance to access the most recent advances in the treatment of vitiligo and other pigmentary disorders. We are gathering together renowned Brazilian and international dermatologists, who will share their knowledge with all the participants. I am proud with the opportunity to preside over this event, which will enhance the role of dermatology worldwide.
I would like to thank those involved in planning committee, especially Dr. Denise Steiner (President of SBD), Dr. Jana Hercogova (President of EADV), Dr. Torello Lotti (President of WHA) and Mr. Yan Valle (CEO VR Foundation).
I am looking forward to welcoming all of you to this special dermatological event.
