In recognition of persistent gaps in dermatologic training as it pertains to skin of colour, the 2022 Summer of Dialogue colloquium, Focus on the Black Dermatology Patient, discussed topics in dermatology specific to Black patients and recent progress on advancing the inclusion of diverse skin tones in research and medical education.
It featured the second Dr. Mercy Alexis Keynote lecture, presented by Dr. Pearl Grimes, Director of the Vitiligo & Pigmentation Institute of Southern California, on the topic of “Gaps in Aesthetic Treatment for Richly Pigmented Skin.”
Meeting faculty included Dr. Andrew Alexis, Dr. Pearl Grimes, Dr. Yvette Miller-Monthrope, Dr. Erin Dahlke, and Dr. Renée A. Beach.
This 90-minute live discussion on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 examined the state of therapies, research, and education in dermatology for providing optimal care to Black patients.
