Caring for Your Child’s Skin and Hair in Transracial Adoption - Expert Webinar
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 during Adoptive Families' Caring for Your Child's Skin and Hair Expert Webinar on December 12, 2012 from 1PM to 2PM ET. Submit questions in advance by posting a comment below.
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.
