The Spring 2008 Rosacea Review is now online at rosacea.org. This issue highlights the National Rosacea Society's efforts to increase visibility of the condition during Rosacea Awareness Month, including evidence of rosacea's impact and prevalence and news of a college student's project that raised both public awareness and funds for the NRS research grants program. Also featured are results from a recent survey on rosacea and heredity, which showed that rosacea tends to run in families and is especially prevalent among those of northern European descent, as well as results from two studies regarding the role of angiogenesis in the development and progression of rosacea.
Other features in the issue include tips for looking your best in photos, Q&As on oily skin and any links between rosacea and other diseases, a new success story and a new patient survey on rosacea and research.
The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
