Adoption Expert Q&A Webinar: Skin and Hair Care
When you become a parent through adoption, your child’s hair and skin may be different from your own -- particularly if you adopted transracially. Join Brooke Jackson, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist, to ask questions about any of the challenges you've faced (including dry winter skin or hair) during Adoptive Families' Adoption Expert Q&A Webinar: Skin and Hair Care on February 26, 2013 from 1PM to 2PM EST.
Brooke Jackson, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist, is the Medical Director of the Skin Wellness Center of Chicago and a Clinical Assistant Professor at Northwestern University. Her specialties include ethnic skin care, laser therapy, and skin cancer prevention. She recently published a guidebook for adoptive families, Child of Mine: Caring for the Skin and Hair of Your Adopted Child. Dr. Jackson is also a 10-time marathoner, eight-time triathlete, and the adoptive mom of three energetic toddlers.
