I am interested in how skin disease affects children and families and in learning more about how we can lessen the impact of skin disease. Increasing access to dermatology care, improving models of care, training local providers in diagnosis of skin disease, and decreasing the stigma of skin disease will all improve the lives of children with skin problems. We are working with remote communities both in British Columbia and around the world to build capacity so that the community is ready and able to respond effectively to childhood skin problems.
