Register now for Summer of Dialogue 2022


Registration is open for the 2022 Summer of Dialogue: Focus on Black Skin, which will be held virtually on Wed. August 17, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM EDT.


In recognition of persistent gaps in dermatologic training regarding skin of colour, the Summer of Dialogue colloquium, Focus on Black Skin, will discuss recent progress on advancing the inclusion of diverse skin tones in research and medical education.


Now in its second year, this 90-minute live discussion will address treatment challenges specific to Black skin (Fitzpatrick Types V & VI), including phenotypic variations from standard training models and the necessity of cultural competence.


This non-accredited program is available to attend at no charge, thanks to the support of sponsors.


Highlights of the event include:

  • The Dr. Mercy Alexis Keynote Lecture: Gaps in Aesthetic Treatment for Richly Pigmented Skin by Dr. Pearl Grimes of Los Angeles

  • Moderator: Dr. Andrew F. Alexis

  • Educating new and existing health care practitioners on optimal skincare for Black patients
