The British Skin Foundation (BSF) and ITN Productions Industry News will be co-producing a new TV programme looking at skin stigma, skin disease and mental health, misinformation and developments in dermatology.
The foundation explains that ‘More Than Skin Deep’ will give honest accounts from experts in skin disease as well as the people living with skin conditions, and look at the connection between skin and mental health issues.
Matthew Patey, CEO of the British Skin Foundation, said, “At the British Skin Foundation our mission is to help find cures and treatments for common conditions like acne and eczema through to potential killers like melanoma skin cancer. We’re looking forward to working with the talented ITN Productions team to help amplify our voice and tell the stories of those who are affected by skin disease and those who are fighting to beat it.”
The programme will launch at the British Association of Dermatologists’ Annual Conference taking place from July 6-8 2021 at the ICC, Birmingham.
