NEJM Webinar on Hair Disorders in People of Color

The New England Journal of Medicine Group, in partnership with the Skin of Color Society Foundation and VisualDx, is hosting a webinar series on The Impact of Skin Color and Ethnicity on Clinical Diagnosis and Research, with the aim of reducing health disparities of underrepresented minority populations.

The second part in the series “Hair Disorders in People of Color” will be held tomorrow, Thursday, November 12, 1:00-2:15 PM ET (12-1:15 CT).

From the event page: “Panelists will define and discuss hair disorders in people of color. External and systemic diseases can cause hair loss. Misdiagnosis often occurs when hair loss is considered cosmetic and not a medical problem. Ethnicity affects the significance and cultural meaning of hair loss, and physicians need to know how each patient is being affected. Hair disorders constitute a significant health problem and affect health care access because of the length and complexity of the visits.”
