Meeting Registration / RSVP


The Global Vitiligo Foundation (GVF) holds two meeting events annually that are attended by dermatologists, scientists, and industry representatives interested in the vitiligo research, diagnosis, and treatment.  These meetings occur the day prior to the American Academy of Dermatology Conference (AAD).


Annual Abstract Session


Each year, the GVF accepts abstracts for presentation at our annual Abstract Session.  These sessions are held in the morning, the day before the AAD conference.  Medical students, residents, research fellows and attending physicians are encouraged to submit their work. Abstract submissions are carefully reviewed by our GVF Committee panel, and notifications regarding accepted abstracts are sent via email.



Annual Dinner Meeting


The GVF Annual Dinner Meeting is held in the evening on the same day as the abstract session and is by invitation only.  This meeting allows for vitiligo experts from all over the globe to collaborate and work toward a common goal of better treatments and an eventual cure for vitiligo.  If you are interested in attending this meeting, please contact us at
