Welcome from The ESPD President

Dear colleagues, friends and parents of affected children,
 
Welcome to our website, website of the European Society for Pediatric Dermatology (ESPD), which is destined not only for the ESPD members but for everyone, including industry companies, who is interested and working in the field of children with skin care problems.
In order to improve the care of children with skin diseases, we have adopted many innovations over the last few years. Thanks to my predecessor, some of them have been already implemented: new Statutes that set the base for yearly ESPD scientific meetings (coming up is the 17th ESPD Annual Meeting in Palma de Mallorca during 19–21 October 2017 and the 18th ESPD Annual Meeting in London during 7–9 June 2018), cooperation with C-IN – a professional association and congress management company with its headquarters in Prague and also the EURO-PEDRA Initiative (under the leadership of Prof. Daniel Hohl) whose first meeting has been already held in Munich on the 7th of September, 2016.
We would like to equally encourage you, our members, to explore the opportunities to work on the interesting clinical projects or even to initiate such projects yourself and recruit colleagues who might be interested in participating as well. Please consult the section Useful links\Shared clinical studies on our website.
Children are our future and we at ESPD want to contribute to the healing and prevention of skin diseases in childhood. Thus the essence of our involvement lies in cooperation within ESPD but also with other professional societies; support of young colleagues interested in the field; promotion of science, research and teaching; cooperation with public institutions (kindergartens and schools) and political bodies for a better education of the general population and last but not least awarding the outstanding work in research, practice and clinical sector of our young colleagues.
 
I truly believe that together we can make a difference. Will you join us in these efforts?
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Prof. Regina Fölster-Holst
President of the ESPD

ESPD proudly announces that Prof. Daniel Hohl, the immediate Past President of ESPD has been selected by the ILDS Board to receive the 2017 ILDS Certificate of Appreciation for International Leadership, for which he has been nominated earlier this year in the scope of his activities within the EURO-PEDRA initiative. Congratulations!
This Award is made to outstanding individuals who have given life-long dedication to particular aspects of dermatology, far beyond what one would expect of a dermatologist in his or her normal practising life.
