 I am very excited to be starting this program, with 3 other fellow YAAW’s and begin working with the youth of San Francisco and West Oakland. I am interested in working with 1 of these 3 programs in SF: Huckleberry, MYEEP, and Oasis for girls.

I can not say how extremely excited I am to start this journey with my fellow yaaw’s and other youth around the Bay! I hope you all stay tuned in and watch our journey together.

The SKINPACT Programme recognises those who see the true potential for advancement in their field and are willing to work passionately to make that vision a reality. The SKINPACT Programme represents an important development of our corporate social responsibility focus in dermatology, something we at Galderma have prioritised for many years and consider a vital element in supporting a sustainable dermatology community worldwide, commented Humberto Antunes, President and CEO of Galderma. It is important that we value the people and ideas that can make a difference and generate a positive impact in advancing dermatological innovation.

The SKINPACT Awards are open for entry from now until 4 February 2015; in March the shortlisted entries, determined by an Expert Panel of leading dermatologists comprising of members of the International League of Dermatological Societies, will be announced on the SKINPACT website and peer voting will commence. The final decision on the winners will be disclosed, and awards granted of US$15,000, at the World Congress of Dermatology in Vancouver in June 2015.

This is a truly innovative approach to determining projects that will benefit patients and physicians, as well as the wider community, and this will be recognised through the support given by community voting. The winning projects will reflect the sustainable approach to connecting people across the globe to drive the focus represented by these new projects. We look forward to announcing the winners next year, said Professor Dr. Wolfram Sterry, President of the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS).
