Board of Directors

2021-2022

GlobalSkin and its activities are governed by a Board of Directors from around the world.
This diverse team has the skills needed to lead a strong, sustainable, effective international organization.

All of our Board Directors are skin patient leaders in their own organizations who, in many cases, are skin patients themselves. In their local role they work directly with skin patients, parents and/or caregivers. The GlobalSkin Board of Directors is very active and meets regularly — both in person and via videoconference.
