GVF Annual Scientific Symposium

Prior to the AAD

Each year, GVF accepts abstracts and scientific posters for presentation at our annual Abstract Symposium. This session is held in the morning, the day before the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) conference. The greatest researchers in Vitiligo are in attendance and give plenary speeches at the meeting. We recruit young dermatologists, medical students, residents, research fellows and attending physicians to submit their work and attend the conference because we know there needs to be a pipeline of talent to get us to a cure.

Vitiligo International Symposium (VIS)

We are again partnering with other global vitiligo organizations to lead the efforts with the 2022 VIS meeting. We are excited to help bring together the brightest vitiligo experts in the world.

Example Schedule

  • Day 1 - Workshops and Welcome Reception
