What you may have missed in our recent newsletter.
I’m sure you feel there is too much information floating around. And turning this sea of data into anything meaningful on any subject requires more effort than most people’s available time, energy or memory. Not to mention the fact that half of studies you read about in the news are wrong, anyways, - but which one is true?
That's why each month I scour the web to ensure you never miss anything worthwhile on vitiligo health and lifestyle. And I put some great stuff for you in the newsletter, which I’m confident will brighten up your weekend. Here is just a snippet of what you may have missed last month:
- FDA warnings about unsafe vitiligo medicines and clinical tools
- A brilliant piece about how predatory open-source publishers extract fees from unsuspecting authors
- Tony Robbin’s incredible ‘7 Keys To Transforming Medical Practice Into A Thriving Business’
- Blockchain solutions that will transform healthcare in the nearest future
- A cool new device with a mobile app for home phototherapy waiting for FDA approval this summer
- and some emotional personal stories and music videos.
Starting April, I will double my efforts and put together a newsletter for you every two weeks. So if you haven't signed up already, please do so now. Join 10,000+ readers and get exclusive content, briefs, alerts, private Q&A's and tons of other useful links. No spam, ever. Just great stuff.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
