Top Events From 2015

Beginning of the year is always a great time to reflect on the past year. We want to take this opportunity to share our 2015 highlights from Vitiligo Land, so without further ado, here they are:

  • We collected 500,000 signatures to support the World Vitiligo Day petition  and awaiting for the official registration with the UN / ECOSOC to begin the dialogue.
  • 7 Master Classes on Vitiligo and Pigmentary Disorders were held for well over 1,100 participants, to share best practices in vitiligo management and connect with community.
  • Over 150,000 people from nearly every country of the world visited our website to learn about vitiligo or find specialists in their neighborhood. 
  • Community Pulse widget on our home page and Quick Polls provide an instantaneous reading of the current state of Vitiligo Land.
  • Mainstream media is going now after vitiligo celebrities, from Cosmopolitan to CNN to Huffington Post to Popsugar ( video) to many other  videos, to help people understand what it takes to live with vitiligo and raise awareness. 
  • New products indicate increased and much anticipated activity in Vitiligo Land. We've seen launch of the new camouflage, cosmeceutical, supplement products last year and anticipate more to come in 2016, - enough for us to begin a new section with product reviews. 
  • We embraced fully the Open Source Research concept and started sharing original data from Vitiligo CloudBank with vitiligo investigators, while collecting new data to enhance the understanding of the disease. 

Yes we know, some of these events have nothing to do with us directly, but it is kinda cool that we helped launch several publications, products, campaigns, groups for the benefit of the global vitiligo community. 

What a year! We hope to see you at one of 10 international events we planned this year and wish you in person a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year 2016.
