Vitiligo Experts Deliver Real-World Insights and Updates on Cutting-Edge Therapies

Updated on October 12, 2020

Some of the world’s most knowledgeable vitiligo doctors and researchers gathered live on MyVitiligoTeam to answer members’ questions. Dr. Amit Pandya moderated a lively conversation covering comorbidities, genetic and autoimmune aspects, pregnancy, diet and nutrition, and upcoming treatments like JAK inhibitors and IL-15. Dr. Pearl E. Grimes, Dr. Seemal R. Desai, and Dr. John Harris discussed their research and delivered real-world insights from their current practices.

The webinar was scheduled for an hour, but attendees had so many great questions the doctors stayed on and answered questions after the webinar formally closed.

Here are some of the things attendees said about the live Q&A:

  • “Omg please don’t go🙏🏼”
  • “Very helpful”
  • “I wish you all were my doctors ... my doctors are great too!”

Here are more places where you can find interviews with top Vitiligo doctors:
