Skin Matters 2017

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.

Full details can be found on the website www.skinmatters2017.co.uk and the email for any queries is info@skinsoul.co.uk

Skin Care Cymru’s inaugural

Comfortable in My Skin Swim Event

 

Saturday May 7, 2016

People living with skin conditions can sometimes feel excluded from regular activities such as swimming. To tie in with the onset of warmer weather, Skin Care Cymru and the Wales National Pool in Swansea have partnered up to offer a private swim session to those who may feel traditionally excluded from swimming in public spaces. This event will be called Comfortable in My Skin and will be open to all those with skin conditions in Wales and their families.

This event also provides an opportunity for those with similar conditions to meet and to share their stories in terms of condition management, offering support to each other.

We anticipate a maximum of 75 guests. We will ask guests to register for the event beforehand to allow us to cater for the numbers attending.

Event Timetable:

4:00– event set up

4:30 –pool closes to the general public, guests arrive

5:00 – 6:30 pools open for swimming

6:00 buffet and refreshments served
