VITILIGLOW™ is delighted to support the Vitiligo Society Open Day 2018. We’ll be exhibiting at the event in London on Saturday 1st December, which is sure to be a really exciting day. You can book your tickets here, but here’s the agenda for the day:
10:05-11:00 Lee Thomas (Emmy award-winning entertainment reporter, keynote speaker and patron of the Vitiligo Society) will be talking about dealing with vitiligo in Hollywood.
11:00-11:30 Simon Marlin will be hosting a talk on living with vitiligo in the spotlight. He’s one half of DJ duo, The Shapeshifters, and has lived with vitiligo for many years.
11:55-12:45 Vitiligo Society Trustee, Natalie Ambersley, will be hosting the guest panel discussion with some fantastic speakers, including friend of VITILIGLOW™, Joti. We’re excited about seeing Joti on stage, and this will be a great opportunity to bring people together to share their own experiences of vitiligo.
12:45-14:00 The 15-minute Annual General Meeting, then a lunch break.
14:00-14:45 Simon Parker will be presenting his ground-breaking mobile app called Skin Deep. It links meditation, breathing and emotional support for multiple skin conditions.
14:45-15:15 Award-winning photographer, Brock Elbank, will be hosting the Vitiligo Portrait Series Update and the 2020 WVD Exhibition.
15:15-15:30 Professor Celia Moss OBE will be presenting the newly-created Children’s Vitiligo booklet series, which will help children and young people understand and learn to accept their skin.
15:30-16:15 Fabio Zucchelli, research associate at UWE Bristol’s Centre for Appearance Research, will be discussing psychological flexibility.
16:30-17:10 Dr Viktoria Eleftheriadou is a specialist in vitiligo at the Centre of Evidence-Based Dermatology. She will be talking about the outcomes for vitiligo trials, which I’m sure will be a very interesting, informative discussion.
VITILIGLOW™ is keen to support the Vitiligo Society. We always enjoy coming along to meet new people and find out about the latest developments in research and the general support on offer. I’ve always found vitiligo to be a very personal journey – I prefer to keep my patches covered up, which led me to create VITILIGLOW™. Others are happy and comfortable in their own skin and don’t feel the need to cover up, and this is exactly what I love about the Vitiligo Society events. They bring together a wide range of people, and I’m always inspired by their stories and what’s brought them to come along for the day.
Having been on TV a few times and spoken quite openly about how vitiligo makes me feel, I’m really keen to hear more about Lee’s experience because he spends so much time in Hollywood, where perfection is the standard.
I’ll be at the Vitiligo Society Open Day with Bruce Green, the supplier of the VITILIGLOW™ products. If you’re planning on attending, you can book your ticket here!
