U045 - Integrative Approaches to Common Dermatologic Problems

Saturday, March 2; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recommend integrative therapies for acne and eczema.
  • Evaluate the role of nutrition and the microbiome in atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, and gluten-sensitive enteropathies.
  • Define functional medicine within the specific context of the dermatologic patient.


This session provides a succinct overview and update on integrative dermatology, with respect to several common dermatologic diagnoses (including acne and atopic dermatitis). Discussion will center around herbs, supplements, dietary considerations, an exploration of functional medicine, and the role of the microbiome in skin health.
