The mission of the CSD is to advocate on behalf of individuals with skin disease. This is accomplished by:
— supporting basic science and clinical research
— fostering physician and patient education
— generating awareness of skin disease
— supporting the growth of member organizations through the sharing of mutual concerns which may increase the pace of discovery or a cure while improving the quality of life for those affected.
The CSD also works closely with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to coordinator research efforts for all skin diseases. Members of the Coalition meet annually with members of Congress and testify when selected before the appropriations committees to educate Congress and the public on the seriousness of skin diseases while stressing the need for increased medical funding.
