Welcome to The Skin of Color Society

The Skin of Color Society was established in 2004 by Susan C. Taylor, M.D. The purpose of the society is to promote awareness of and excellence within the area of special interest of dermatology — skin of color. The Society is committed to the education of health care providers and the general public on dermatologic health issues related to skin of color.

The Society supports research and other activities that impact individuals with skin of color. Partnerships with dermatologists from the national and international communities, professional medical organizations, corporate and industry groups, and community ensures our success in serving all individuals with skin of color. We invite you to join us in this important endeavor.
