From the Author
When I read, I always like to know more about the author or specialist behind the words. It helps me understand the cognitive bias and tools of the person, and to anticipate my learning outcomes. So, here's a bit about me:
My competency in the area you are about to discover evolved from real-life experiences and is built upon a formal education as a computer engineer with a master's degree in business administration. As a professional, I went from nearly three decades in the high-tech and business development sector to become Chief Executive Officer of the non-profit Vitiligo Research Foundation in 2010.
And as a patient since around six years of age, I have gone through every common pitfall known to a person diagnosed with vitiligo. Misdiagnosis, years of non-treatment followed by bursts of mistreatment - including under-dose and over-dose - treatment dropouts, self-prescription and self-medication, to name a few.
When challenged with a complicated question, I like to ask myself, "How would I explain this to my mother?" So let's get down-to-earth to make sure you walk away from this book with a clear understanding of your best treatment options and their potential outcomes.
