Patient Resources

The term skin of color (SOC) refers to individuals with more pigmented skin than Caucasians and can include individuals with African American, Hispanic, Asian, Native American and multiracial backgrounds. There are a myriad of issues that contribute to the disparity in care for SOC dermatologic patients. A lack of SOC representation in medical education and literature, a deficit in providers with SOC themselves, and misconceptions about how SOC is affected by certain skin conditions and treatments all create barriers to delivering quality dermatologic care to patients with SOC.
