Wrapping up a looong weekend at the congress of American Academy of Dermatology in Washington.
Dr. Huggins (SE Michigan Vitiligo Support Group), Vicki Tiahrt, Ogo Maduewesi (VITSAF) and Yan Valle (VR Foundation) strengthen the World Vitiligo Alliance (photo below).
Working together with leading companies on bringing UVB phototherapy closer to your home or practice. Expect a compact, handheld, battery-powered LED light sometime soon.
