Skin Matters 2017
Skin Matters 2017 is an interactive conference for all those with a skin condition, including psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, vitiligo, acne, ichthyosis, alopecia, mycosis fungoides, lupus, pityriasis and all other skin conditions that are difficult to treat and manage.
Many of the most common skin conditions are often stigmatised, involve a daily treatment regimen, or share common symptoms, triggers or biological pathways. Skin Matters 2017 aims to help all those with a skin condition to better understand an inflammatory skin condition, so as to learn how to manage it for life.
There is currently an overwhelming amount of information available on the internet, but no filter to ensure that what you’re reading is qualified, reliable, evidence-based knowledge. This event is therefore being led by renowned dermatologists, psychodermatologists, nurses, skin-focused researchers and patient advocacy groups.
The aim of this event is to help as many people as possible to feel more in control of their skin condition, and more confident about their future. We will discuss a wide range of topics including conventional treatments, alternative treatments, better access to treatments, coping strategies, greater support and the latest research.
The event is being held at the home of the Wellcome Trust charity in London (almost opposite Euston tube station) on Saturday 20th May from 9.45am – 5pm. The £32 ticket price includes lunch, afternoon tea & cakes, and refreshments throughout the day.
