The National Rosacea Society has expanded and updated its Web site, www.rosacea.org, to provide comprehensive educational information on rosacea for patients, health professionals and the general public.
The site features photographs showing the primary signs and symptoms of rosacea, answers to frequently asked questions, printable informational brochures and a diary checklist to help patients identify and avoid lifestyle factors that may aggravate their individual conditions.
Past issues of Rosacea Review are also posted on the site, indexed by topic as well as by issue to make searches for specific information faster and easier.
In addition, the new site offers materials to support physicians in clinical practice, as well as information on the Society's research grants program, which is dedicated to supporting scientific investigation into the potential causes and other key aspects of rosacea. The research section includes details on grants awarded since the program's inception, and features summaries of completed study results as they are presented or published.
In addition to the Web site, information and materials on rosacea are available by calling toll-free at 1-888-NO-BLUSH, or by writing the National Rosacea Society,
196 James St., Barrington, Illinois 60010, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
