XIII Master Class On Vitiligo in Tel Aviv, Israel
Over 160 dermatologists from 9 countries gathered in the beautiful Dan Hotel on the seashore of Tel Aviv for a intense course on vitiligo on November 25-26, 2015.
Expert speakers discussed the latest basic research, advances, evidence and guidelines on diagnosis, investigation and management of vitiligo and other pigment cell disorders such as melanoma and melanoma. The program covered a wide range of topics from the Dead Sea climatotherapy to telemedicine in dermatology.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
