2023: The SPOTS program was selected as a “Top Project” by the International Awards for Social Responsibility in Dermatology. The awards are a partnership between the World Congress of Dermatology (WCD), the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS), and L’Oreal.
These awards recognize dermatologists leading high-impact projects in three categories: prevention and education on skin health; improved quality of life and self-esteem for people facing skin issues; and access to care coverage and surgery.
There were 193 project submissions from around the world, and five winners chosen, one from each of the geographic regions: North America, South and Central America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and Asia Pacific. In addition, they also recognized the “Top Projects” within each region. SPOTS was voted a “Top Project” as it was within the top 5 projects in North America.
