Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Alopecia (But Were Afraid to Ask)
About the Course...
If you dread walking into an exam room to face a patient with “endocrine alopecia,” don’t feel alone.
No, it’s not you! These cases are very challenging, in large part because of inaccuracies in diagnostic
testing, and confusion over interpretation of endocrine tests. Our goal for this program is to go through
endocrine skin disease from “A to Z.”
Our featured speaker is Dr. Linda Frank from the University of Tennessee, who has spent a good
part of her career as a dermatologist studying endocrine diagnostic tests and their uses. Ever sent
a “sex steroid panel” to Tennessee? Ever been confused by the results? Hear an expert discuss
the rationale for these tests...and when and whether you should be using them.
