Help Us Stop Vitiligo Before It Begins

Does someone in your family have vitiligo? We are conducting a study to understand the causes of vitiligo and predict who might be at risk of developing it. We would like to invite siblings, children, or other close relatives of individuals with vitiligo who live in the United States to participate in this study.

What is Vitiligo? 

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease that results in the appearance of white spots on the skin. It affects 0.5-2% of the population (about 1/100 people) regardless of race and gender, and can be psychologically devastating for vitiligo patients due to its disfiguring appearance.
