The American Academy of Dermatology's Annual Meeting was a busy and productive conference for IADPO. Our delegation of board directors and staff met with patient leaders, partners and other important stakeholders while on the ground in San Diego last month. This was an opportunity to share our GlobalSkin vision of improving the lives of those affected by dermatological disorders throughout the world.

Among of our key activities, we hosted a GRIDD Stakeholder Advisory Committee meeting for representatives of confirmed and prospective funding partners. We presented details of the project alongside our lead researcher Dr. Matthias Augustin (University of Hamburg), followed by an engaging dialogue. A great deal of support was expressed for our ground-breaking research project which will measure the impact of dermatological diseases on patients around the world.

IADPO also hosted its Skin Matters reception which brought together patient leaders, researchers, industry and representative from the ILDS. View our photo album here.
