Earlier this year, GlobalSkin was invited to become the first patient organization representative on the European Academy of Dermatology and Venerology (EADV) Patient Association Working Group (PAWG). This is a testament to the positive working relationship that has been developing between the organizations for some time. It also speaks to the connectedness of GlobalSkin to the European dermatology patient community which makes up just over half of our membership.
Our Executive Director Jennifer Austin has been actively engaging on the PAWG in planning the fourth annual jointly organized special interest session (focused on patients) at the EADV’s Congress. She has also been providing advice on the EADV’s Patient Corner on their website to ensure it is inviting and supportive from a patient perspective. Other areas of collaboration are in progress so there will certainly be more to come on this collaboration.
