The group of about 15 encouraged a lot of discussion and questions about these new treatments and the pathogenesis of vitiligo and made for a great networking session too. Cosmetic camouflage demonstrations to help conceal patches of vitiligo on the face and hands was also provided by the Chroma Dermatology, a Dermal Clinician in Melbourne which was loved by the attendees.
We ended with discussing the importance of giving a voice to vitiligo in Australia and how patients and their families need to be at the centre of it all. The Chroma Dermatology team are committed to encouraging ongoing events and meetings in the area. Our purpose is to increase awareness of this autoimmune condition in the community, to encourage fundraising activities to help support vitiligo research in Australia and to provide a caring and compassionate network of patients, family and friends, doctors and industry to encourage hope, truth and change for those living with vitiligo.
