Vitiligo Clinic & Research Center at UMass (Boston, MA) has a new website.

Dr. John Harris started new blog on vitiligo: 'I am a physician-scientist who focuses my clinical and research efforts on vitiligo, and therefore I think about this disease a lot all the time, in fact. Therefore I thought it would be helpful to share my thoughts with others who are interested in vitiligo as well, particularly the patients who suffer from it and their loved ones.'

Slobodanka Mijatovich has set up Vitiligo Support Group in Serbia (Facebook page) with a clear vision to raise awareness and educate community on the latest advancements in vitiligo.
