It seems like a long time ago now (the holiday season has a way of stretching time in strange ways), but we sent you our newsletter just before the New Year with a sneak peek of our activities for this year.
To recap, we are switching to a monthly email newsletter and weekly Facebook posts unless you all write in to say No, Thanks or if the vitiligo world has very little of substance to report. You will receive regular news on vitiligo research, therapies, products, self-help, Q&A, with a touch of a gossip-celebrity-lifestyle-stuff.
Occasionally well have longer submissions on a specific topic, but that will be an exception to the rule and because the topic merits additional coverage. New products will hopefully be a regular section. We will be listing Vitiligo News contributors at the end of each edition.
Stay tuned for Vitiligo News!
