About

As we return to meeting in person, we expect that the Symposium will attract another record-setting crowd of international colleagues, residents, and research fellows.

Researchers from around the U.S. and the world will present new research in skin of color dermatology, share key insights and discuss the continuing evolution of the field. With the ever-increasing importance of skin of color dermatology around the world, the Skin of Color Society continues to grow in size, scope and impact.

In addition to our invited expert speakers, we will have residents, fellows, and medical students featured in oral and poster presentations.
