Thank you to all who attended the 14th Annual Skin of Color Society Symposium held in San Diego, CA on February 15, 2018, at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. We hope you enjoyed the program!

The Symposium brought together international colleagues, residents, and research fellows who will present on new research, share experiences, and discuss the new direction of the special interest of dermatology–skin of color.

Submitted abstracts were presented as many came to participate in the Symposium.

We had an amazing symposium and would like to thank everyone who came out San Diego, CA to create this unique experience. 

For those unable to attend, we are pleased to share with you the Symposium summary and handouts.

Details for 2019 Skin of Color Symposium in Washington D.C. coming soon.
