GlobalSkin 2019 Conference Overview

GlobalSkin 2019 took place June 7-9, 2019 in Milan, Italy
just ahead of the World Congress of Dermatology.

GlobalSkin 2019 is a conference specifically designed for dermatology patient leaders. This past Conference attracted over 100 delegates from around the world representing a wide cross-section of serious skin diseases. The International Alliance of Dermatology Patient Organizations (IADPO) is the host of this biennial conference which is planned in close consultation with its members.

GlobalSkin 2019 supported dermatology patient organization leaders by providing learning opportunities in advocacy, science and research, and building strong, resilient organizations. This event inspired delegates while also providing opportunities to share experiences with other patient leaders. Geared both to experienced patient leaders and novice leaders, GlobalSkin 2019 offered sessions at various levels of mastery to ensure value for all who attended.
