F054 - Updates in the Epidemic of Hair Loss in African American Women

Saturday, March 2; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe the results of a large nationwide cohort of African American women examining the prevalence and risk factors for Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) and Traction Alopecia.
  • Discuss data on genetic link in CCCA.
  • Analyze the state of the science including the latest treatments and explore future directions in CCCA research.

Description

This session will explore the latest research on the epidemic of hair loss among African American women. It is suspected that the current estimates of prevalence are an underestimate and there have been no randomized controlled treatment trials for the most common form of hair loss in this population. We will describe the results of the only large cohort study of 59,000 African American women in the U.S. exploring the prevalence and risk factors for hair loss in this population and our community based research leading to the earlier detection of hair loss by partnering with hair stylists.
