|Skin Advocate iPhone Application|
The Sturge-Weber Foundation is an active member of the Coalition of Skin Diseases and we are excited to share a great new way to enable health care providers to refer patients with SWS/KT/PWB to the Struge-Weber Foundation.
The iPhone was developed by the Skin Coalition's UT Southwestern resident Shadi Kourosh, MD in conjunction with Dr. Paul Bergstresser and the Society of Investigative Dermatology. Dr. Kourosh presented the app at the TDS Fall Meeting in Temple, TX.
The app allows medical professionals to quickly and electronically provide patients with support group information sent as an anonymous email. There is no cost involved. Just search the iPhone App store for "dermatology" or "skin advocate" or follow this link. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/skin-advocate/id465525999?mt=8

Description by Society for Investigative Dermatology
Skin Advocate streamlines referral to patient advocacy groups for every physician treating skin disease and also for every dermatology patient.
The app provides immediate access to contact information for dermatologic patient advocacy groups in the Coalition of Skin Diseases.
On your iOS device, you can view a brief synopsis of the organization's goals, its website, contact information for the organization's patient advocacy contacts, and more.
This information can be quickly and anonymously emailed to patients and family members for their reference at home. The email will originate from the Society for Investigative Dermatology's server, so your personal email address will not be included.
You can also print it to an iOS-compatible wireless printer if a hardcopy is desired.
This free app is provided by the Society for Investigative Dermatology as a service to the dermatology community.
