Skin Equity Resources

for Dermatologists

With a shared goal to address disparities in dermatology and close the gap for patients with skin of color, Vaseline and HUED partnered to create a space to provide further educational resources for culturally inclusive practices in the healthcare setting.

This platform was designed to encourage consideration of strategies to positively and directly impact the health inequities faced by affected individuals and communities, and offer guidance on providing culturally competent care. Here, you'll find resources to support you in meeting the needs of and accurately guiding patients with skin of color, and raising awareness and understanding of different cultural, physical, and mental needs. The featured content is tailored for dermatologists, dermatology advanced care professionals and medical professionals treating patients with dermatologic concerns.
