The Vitiligo Society, the UK’s longest running charity dedicated to raising awareness and supporting those with Vitiligo, will be hosting their annual open day on Saturday 1st December 2018.
This is the 14th year in which the Vitiligo Society has hosted its annual event in London and like previous years, they have the pleasure of welcoming a great lineup of speakers, including a clinical psychologist, a world renowned photographer, a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Nottingham who specialises in Vitiligo, the authors of a soon to be released Children’s Vitiligo booklet series and an inspiring speaker panel of Vitiligo ambassadors who have had much visibility across the media. They also have the pleasure of introducing Lee Thomas, the Emmy award winning entertainment reporter at WJBK Fox 2 News in Michigan and the author of the autobiography, Turning White.
The event, which invites both members of the Society and non-members, will take place at The Amba Hotel in Charing Cross, London and will allow the opportunity to network, interact and hear updates from a number of medical and health related professionals within the Vitiligo community.
Eyal Raveh, Trustee and Chairperson, says: ‘The annual open day, our biggest event in the calendar, is essential in terms of bringing our members and the extended Vitiligo community together, as a way of providing medical updates and crucial information within the Vitiligo community. This year we have made every effort to create an agenda that hosts a varied mix of speakers and that will provide insightful updates within a number of remits.”
The doors will open at approximately 09:00 for tea, coffee and light refreshments. The first speaker will arrive on stage at 09:30. There will be specified tea/coffee breaks throughout the day and a sandwich lunch, prepared by the hotel, for our delegates.
