As the body’s largest organ, the skin is constantly working to protect the body’s internal organs and regulate temperature, among other vital functions, and the condition of a person’s skin can reflect their overall health and aging status. Diseases of the skin, such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, affect people of all ages and can take a major toll on the patient’s quality of life. CME Outfitters has developed this Dermatology Education Hub with a number of educational activities and resources to help you better treat and manage your patients with aging skin or skin disease in order to increase quality of life.
