Our 2015 calendar is looking very busy with a number of conferences booked in......
Our Chair of Trustees, Jackie Tomlinson, has been invited to speak at this conference about the challenges of alopecia. Jackie has spoken at many events over the years and it is fantastic that she has been invited to speak at FACE this year.
We will be attending the BDNG's annual conference and will have a stand in the exhibition hall along with other patient support groups.
The 95th annual meeting of the British Association of Dermatologists takes place in July and Alopecia UK will be attending. We are proud of the links with have developed with BAD over the years and are keen to further promote the needs of people with alopecia amongst those in the field of dermatology.
We are often told by those who get in touch with us that GPs can often be dismissive of their alopecia. To try and change this, Alopecia UK is attending the RCGP annual conference for the first time this year. We are really keen to highlight the psychological impact of hair loss amongst GPs and are pleased to be attend an event which will have 2,000 primary care professionals in attendance.
As you can see, we are travelling the length of the UK this year to get our voices heard amongst medical professionals. We are committed to improving the lives of people with alopecia in the UK and we believe attending these events will really help to raise awareness of alopecia within the medical community.
