GlobalSkin 2017 Conference Highlights

gs2017 delegates

Last month, patient leaders from nearly 20 countries ─ from as far away as Africa India, Russia, Australia and North America ─ convened in Europe near Geneva in Ferney-Voltaire, France for the GlobalSkin 2017 Conference.  The GlobalSkin Team was thrilled to be able to bring together such a diverse group of dermatology patient leaders from around the world representing a significant number of disease areas.

Delegates participated in two and a half days of networking, learning and sharing.  It was a very full program which included eight plenary sessions, 20 workshops, our Annual General Meeting and a half-day Patient Perspectives Symposium.

Here is what some of our delegates had to say:

—A truly life-changing experience. I am very excited and filled to the brim with encouragement and fuel for the future.

—I loved, loved, loved being able to attend. I will bring all of the information back to my board.

closequote—I'm inspired to learn more about our commonalities and develop a plan to work together to raise awareness about ALL skin diseases.

Thank you for the support of our Conference partners, which helped make it possible to bring together so many participants from around the world for this important event!
