Welcome Word

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Spanish Group of Pediatric Dermatology (GEDP) that I have the honor to preside, it is a real pleasure for me to lead the Organizing Committee of the 17th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Pediatric Dermatology (ESPD), which will be held during 19-21 October 2017 in Palma de Mallorca, my home town. Our goals are to provide an excellent program that includes hot and controversial issues, to encourage close interaction between attendees and pediatric dermatologists with mastering experience and reputation, to enhance personal and professional relationships, and to promote future multicenter interdisciplinary work.

We have selected the most active and generous speakers, with a top level of scientific production. The chosen venue is located on the seafront of Palma de Mallorca, a cosmopolitan city that is well connected with most European cities. Mallorca offers a captivating beauty with a rich environmental, cultural and gastronomic variety that stimulate our minds and our senses. Historically, this Mediterranean island has been the birthplace or place of inspiration and work of many famous people: entrepreneurs, artists, philosophers, missionaries, doctors, athletes and others.
It is a real honor and pleasure to welcome you for the 17th ESPD Annual Meeting. We appreciate your participation and hope that your efforts and learning will reverse in improving the skin health of your children patients.

Sincerely,



Ana Martín-Santiago
17th ESPD Annual Meeting President
