Master Class in Sao Paolo, Brazil, on October 25-26, 2013
The speakers have tailored their presentations to show the factors affecting vitiligo onset and progression, whilst addressing in detail specific vitiligo therapies.
Says Yan Valle, CEO, “As a speaker, I was impressed by two things. The first was the calibre and diversity of speakers. To bring together a group of top dermatologists in one place, each with a common theme, but each with a different view, is a challenge. The second was the way the Brazilian Society of Dermatology, chaired by Prof. Denise Steiner, and Master-Class President Prof. Paulo Cunha had found a way to organize this event, and to attract hard working doctors for learning in vitiligo. The sessions and event were immaculately choreographed, the participants were more than engaged, and the environment was fun. Well done to the BSD team!”
Dr. Igor Korobko has given two planned presentations and one additional, for Prof. Davinder Parsad who was held back by the unforeseen circumstances in India. "What a great event this Master class was. First class speakers and such an exciting mix of practitioners from across the country and Latin America. Sao Paolo was a very good introduction to highly interactive, practical sessions to come in Chandigarh next year," says Igor.
At the III Master Class we had the opportunity to take a step back and think about the educational programs and materials, and how to improve our communication with patients. One of the most beneficial aspects to us as a company has been the level of interaction between VRF, the Brazilian Society of Dermatology, the speakers, and the participants.
