Dr. Valerie Harvey opened the event by welcoming attendees and informing them on of ongoing activities of the Skin of Color Society. Guests enjoyed heavy hors d’oeuvres while enjoying the picturesque foliage of Colonial Williamsburg. The event was well received with ample positive feedback including members of the VDS leadership requesting a follow-up event at the next VDS annual meeting.
