This webinar is part of our 'Research Week' in Alopecia Awareness Month 2021. 

Julie, Andrew, Melinda and Abby will be exploring the following: 

- What can a GP or dermatologist offer someone with alopecia areata?

- What are the currently available treatments for alopecia areata?

- What new treatments are looking promising in clinical trials?

- Why does it take so long for new treatments to be available to UK patients on the NHS?

The ticket price for this webinar is £10, with every pound of the ticket fee helping Alopecia UK to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia through aims of Support, Awareness and Research. 

This webinar is the sixth of a series of six webinars being held in Alopecia Awareness Month 2021. We are offering half of our webinars free of charge and half for a price of £10 per person.
