XIX Master Class on Vitiligo in Hyderabad on September 9-10, 2016
This annual master class was held in Hyderabad (India) together with 3rd PIGMENT Meeting under the joint leadership of Dr. Davinder Parsad, Dr. Sushil Tehaliani, Dr. A. Parthasarthy and Dr. SD Mehta.
The theme of 2-day program was "Deep Dive Into Vitiligo Research: Current Trends And Innovations".
Master class has included a veritable scientific feast of expert speakers, practice-oriented and clinically relevant topics, and multiple opportunities to participate during deliberations. International & Indian experts in vitiligo share their unique experiences with 408 participants.
Prof. Davinder Parsad welcomes four hundred participants from all over India, Nepal and Pakistan.
This year, master class on vitiligo attracted more researchers, doctors and healthcare professionals than the previous one in Amritsar.
We'll add more photos in the next few days.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
