Medical Dermatology in Multicultural Skin
Saturday, March 22
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Donald A. Glass, II, MD, PhD, FAAD
- Wilma Fowler Bergfeld, MD, FAAD
- Ginette Hinds, MD, FAAD
- Apra Sood, MD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Identify skin and hair disorders that disproportionately affect people of Asian, African and Hispanic descent.
- Recognize the environmental and genetic factors that may lead to increased morbidity and mortality in these populations.
- Develop effective management plans for addressing these disorders.
African Americans, Hispanics and Asians are at an increased risk for many diseases with skin manifestations such as keloids, hidradenitis suppurativa, alopecia and various dermatitides, and often times experience a poorer outcome. Yet, the medical implications of these disorders are conspicuously absent from the discussions of the care of patients with ‘skin of color’. This forum will focus on the ethnic differences in the diagnosis and management of keloids, alopecia and hair care practices, assorted dermatitides, and hidradenitis suppurativa in multicultural patients and present current data on management strategies.
