World Vitiligo Day 2017 celebrations in Detroit

As I write, celebrations are underway all over the world. We just wrapped three days of US national celebrations - themed “Step Up for Vitiligo: A call for Truth, Hope and Change.” The event was led by Dr. Richard Huggins, powered by Lee Thomas and his Clarity Foundation and hosted by the V-Strong Vitiligo Support Group. Also, Prof. Jorge Luis Perez from Holguin has added a distinct Cuban flavor to our large party.

Further south in Brazil - host country of the 2017 World Vitiligo Day HQ - emotions and energy are running satisfyingly high. WVD President Prof. Paulo Cunha and his team of enthusiasts are raising awareness for vitiligo across national TV, social media and on the street.

We'll update this page with news and reports from all over the world soon.
