At this last meeting for the year, we will be discussing all issues related to Vitiligo, especially the quality of life. Repigmentation and Depigmentation topics will be discussed as well.
Come out and enjoy an afternoon filled with hope, solidarity and intrigue as we tackle issues related to Vitiligo. Thru the trials and tribulations, its important to always remember that you are not your skin. Allow other things in your life to define who you truly are. These among other topics will be discussed at our year end meeting. Hope to see all of you there :)
