American Academy of Dermatology

The American Academy of Dermatology was selected to receive an award up to $100,000 to implement its project, Good Skin Knowledge.

This program aims to destigmatize vitiligo by increasing awareness and equipping educators and community leaders with the resources to teach children about the condition via an English and Spanish training module. The module will address gaps in education about vitiligo to ease the burden of the condition and show how it affects people living with vitiligo, creating compassion and awareness for those living with vitiligo.

VStrong Vitiligo Support Community was selected to receive an award up to $35,000 to implement its project, VStrong "Shine"- Vitiligo Sun Protection Strategy.

Through an interactive workshop, VStrong "Shine" will unite various stakeholders to build a process for providing the vitiligo community with the necessary education about proper sun protection and resources to live a fruitful life while minimizing any negative impact of sun exposure.

The 2022 recipients were selected as their projects embodied the core mission of the Incyte Ingenuity Awards in vitiligo. Both offered unwavering commitment to addressing the specific needs of those impacted by vitiligo through a thoughtful, creative and original approach.

We look forward to seeing these innovative proposals come to fruition and the positive impact they will have on the vitiligo community.
