How to Treat Skin of Color—Precautions, Considerations, and Recommendations

During this presentation, you will learn the unique characteristics, disease and disorder presentations, cultural and dietary considerations, treatment recommendations, and precautions when treating skin of color, including black skin of African descent, Asian skin, East Indian skin, Latinx skin, Nordic skin, and transgender skin.
