BEYOND BORDERS-SKIN HEALTH CHECK-UPS in Northern Rwanda.

NYDG certified dermatologists Dr. David Colbert and Dr. Jessica Weiser joined NYDG Foundation Director Stephan Bognar, to review the case files of the 15 students with albinism the foundation supports in northern Rwanda. They’re preparing for the country’s first live tele-dermatology clinic in the coming weeks.

Thank you to our photographer Maggie Andresen for traveling to Rwanda and providing us with your valuable skills in photography to help us launch the tele-dermatology clinic. People with albinism have their lives cut short because of preventable skin cancer. In Tanzania, life expectancy for this community can be as low as 40 years of age.
SKIN HEALTH MATTERS.
