Patients and healthcare professionals and their patients are the reason for everything we do. To provide them with effective dermatological solutions, we work closely with industry and academia to build a strong and sustainable community which can shape the future of dermatology. With our initiatives in the areas of social responsibility and education, we can have a positive impact on the daily lives of people suffering from skin conditions.
Since 2012, we have been involved with Camp Wonder, a summer camp for children with chronic and life-threatening skin diseases. Every year, Camp Wonder gives nearly 100 children with severe skin diseases a week away from being bullied or stared at. They get a chance to experience the joys of summer camp and make friends. Camp Wonder is provided free, supported by volunteers, doctors and nurses.
