Aesthetic practitioners Dr Lara Watson and Dr Priyanka Chadha are launching the Aesthetics United Charity Conference (AUCC), taking place on February 27 2021, London
Dr Watson explains that Aesthetics United is a newly founded non-profit organisation, started with the intention of bringing together the aesthetics community. The event will be delivering free educational sessions whilst raising money for Refuge UK and NHS Charities Together.
She said, “We wanted to unite the aesthetics world behind a charitable cause and support those working in our sector to get people back on their feet post COVID-19. We want our speakers to share their own personal journeys, so rather than just pushing new products it’s going to be about the trials and tribulations of the industry and how we overcome them. It’s going to be honest and uncensored – we want to learn about individuals.”
Dr Chadha added, "The event is for aestheticians and by aestheticians, with a number of exciting health and wellness groups exhibiting and offering unique opportunities to attendees."
Speakers at the event include aesthetic practitioners Dr Ash Labib, Dr Benji Dhillon, Dr Nina Bal, Dr Maryam Zamani, Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai, nurse prescriber Sharon Bennett, consultant plastic surgeons Mr Paul Banwell and Mr Naveen Cavale, journalist Alice Hart-Davis and the founders of Glowday, Joby and Hannah Russell.
Watson also explains that they will be pairing these headline speakers with new and upcoming practitioners or 'rising stars', with sessions featuring collaborative work between the two.
She continued, "As surgical trainees we have always appreciated the importance of strong mentorship and we are delighted to use AUCC as a platform to showcase and nurture new talent in our industry."
The event will be taking place at the Sofitel, St James in London on
27th February 2021 and delegates can register here
