"Speaking of Vitiligo..."

I am a physician-scientist who focuses my clinical and research efforts on vitiligoI am a physician-scientist who focuses my clinical and research efforts on vitiligo, and therefore I think about this disease a lot – all the time, in fact. Therefore I thought it would be helpful to share my thoughts with others who are interested in vitiligo as well, particularly the patients who suffer from it and their loved ones. I want to make clear that while I am affiliated with many vitiligo organizations, my comments in this blog are my own, and do not reflect the opinions of those organizations. In addition, my research is largely focused on finding new treatments, and ultimately a cure, for vitiligo. This work is supported by a number of sources, including pharmaceutical companies, which by definition creates potential conflicts of interest. In full disclosure, here is a list of our vitiligo research supporters. Please know that, to the best of my ability, all of my comments are unbiased reflections of my understanding of vitiligo as both a physician and scientist. I do not permit advertisements on my website, and do not endorse companies or products that may advertise on other sites that may be referenced here.

IN HER WORDS – Erika Page

Posted On: Thursday, May 21, 2020 Posted By: Erika Page Tags: Living with vitiligo, Vitiligo

This is the 3rd in a series of blog posts I’m calling IN HER WORDS, and today will focus on Erika Page. Erika has vitiligo, and she is passionate about bringing people together to create a strong community of support. She writes a blog called Living Dappled, and if you haven’t already, I encourage you to check it out here. As she describes it, Living Dappled is a vitiligo blog and lifestyle guide catering mostly to girls and women with the condition. Erika is a great writer, capturing the essence of her subject, connecting people with vitiligo all over the world, and fact-checking her content to make sure she gets it right! She shares beautiful photos of her subjects with vitiligo and gets their stories about living with it. I think Erika has been a wonderful addition to the vitiligo community and a great resource for those with vitiligo. I wanted to give you a chance to get to know her a bit here.
