Applications are being accepted online for the 2019 International Awards for Social Responsibility in Dermatology.
This third edition of the Awards will recognize social initiatives led by dermatologists having a positive impact on patients and people facing dermatological issues in three main categories:
- Prevention and education on skin health
- Improved quality of life and self-esteem
- Access to care, coverage and surgery.
The project must fall within the scope of a social initiative led by dermatologists as individuals, in an association, or a hospital. Projects must be focused on patients with the aim of improving their physical and psychological wellbeing, self esteem, social integration and skin health, independently from their medical treatment enabling them to reengage socially.
An independent committee of five dermatologists from the International League of Dermatological Societies will select the 5 best projects, one from each of the main ILDS geographical regions.
The winners will each be rewarded with a 20,000€ grant. The Awards announcement will be made during the 24thWorld Congress of Dermatology on Monday, June 10, 2019 in Milan, Italy.
Information and applications are available online.
