Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Skin of Color Society’s Scientific Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the 16th Annual Skin of Color Society Scientific Symposium being held virtually in lieu of our inperson Symposium. We have curated a virtual experience that we hope will educate SOCS members from the safety and comfort of their home or office.
Through this virtual symposium, poster and oral presenters will have an opportunity to walk viewers through their presentation via audio and video presentations. Oral presentations will be accessible on our virtual program as prerecorded videos and a simplified PowerPoint presentation. As we near the launch of the virtual program, the link to presentations will be available here.
Once in-person meetings can take place again, we will hold a networking reception to honor our 2020 outgoing board members, research grant winners, and observership grant recipients. Our plan is to host this reception during one of the larger dermatological meetings held later in the year.
We look forward to virtually engaging with you and when the current crisis has abated, networking and socializing in-person.
Lynn McKinley-Grant, MD, MA, SOCS President
Amy McMichael, MD, Scientific Committee Co-Chair
Andrew F. Alexis, MD, Scientific Committee Co-Chair
