Live, enjoy and dare..... also with vitiligo!

Spotlight! No. 1 (March 2024)

Organized in mid-February the webinar about the (possible) disease burden of vitiligo. About 170 people preferred to register for the online meeting, of course we will already write about it in the new one Spotlight! which will be released at the end of February.

Uncertainty is a familiar theme for people with vitiligo, the editors write about it more often. Take the series 'Appearance & vitiligo' that started last year. In this March issue we zoom in on self-tanning products such as mousses, gels and spray tans. How exactly do they work, can you use them safely? 

Attention is also paid to the detailed study of two students from Fontys University of Applied Sciences. On the instructions of they investigated how the association can better help children (and their parents), teenagers and young adults to deal with (the disease burden of) vitiligo. The questionnaire then reveals, among other things, that 'many healthcare providers have little current knowledge about vitiligo'. And that 'the advice and assistance provided to people with vitiligo can be improved'. 

The research results confirm why organized World Vitiligo Day last year, with the theme Vitiligo ain't no picnic ('Vitiligo is no fun'). The association used that day to draw attention to the disease burden of vitiligo in general. And of course it will continue in 2024.

This and more in the upcoming March issue of Spotlight!
