Community Services Activites

  • ​​​On the occasion of World Psoriasis Day, the Department of Dermatology organized a community project in commemoration of the World Psoriasis Day under the theme “Breaking Barriers" in collaboration with the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA). A public event took place over a period of two days on the 29-30th of October, 2016, in which education and awareness on the disease were underscored.

  • For the second year, the Department organized “World Psoriasis Day – AUBMC" campaign under the theme “Psoriasis Inside Out". This event took place on Friday October 27, 2017 in high traffic areas within the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) where more than 500 visitors were educated about psoriasis as a global none-communicable disease by members of the faculty, house-staff, nursing staff and others who selflessly participated in the activities and contributed to the success of the day.

  • During the International Beirut Marathon 2017, the Department participated with the theme “AUBeSunSafe" to promote sun safety habits and to encourage people to apply protective measures against the injurious effects of sun rays. In an attempt to prepare runners before the run to be AUBeSunSafe, we posted a video on the AUBMC webpage and its social media educating them about sun safety measures to be taken. During the Marathon, sunscreens and hats were distributed to thousands of runners.
