Mark your calendars for the upcoming IMCAS Academy Webinar of the Month, “Melasma—Change the Skin Color of your Patients” featuring SOCS experts on September 25, 2019!

We’re very excited to build on our collaboration with IMCAS (International Master Course on Aging Science), which began in 2018 under Dr. Seemal R. Desai’s presidency of the Skin of Color Society (2017-2019), inspired by his vision to expand SOCS’ presence globally.

Since that time, SOCS and IMCAS successfully co-organized and co-presented a first-ever course, “Melasma & Skin of Color,” in August at the IMCAS 2019 meeting in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Presenting SOCS members included: Dr. Sahar Foad Ghannam, Dr. Babar K. Rao, Dr. Kesha Buster, Dr. Valerie M Harvey, and Dr. Claudia Marcela Arenas Soto. The session’s Q & A period was co-chaired by Dr. Davi De Lacerda and Dr. Sebastian Velez Ocampo.
