The activities commenced with a courtesy visit to Adetokunbo Fabamwo, a professor and chief medical director, LASUTH, by the participating dermatologists from LASUTH and Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).

According to Fabamwo, the skin is the mirror to the body and people need to be mindful of what they apply on their skin.

Beatrice Eneh, La Roche Posay representative in Nigeria, who spoke at the event said: “We are proud to partner with Nigerian Dermatologists on this important initiative because you cannot speak about overall wellness and skincare in isolation.”
