Corvo Island Azores Dermatology
Concerning the premium «dermatologist from the Heart» awarded by the Fondation La Roche Posay in 2014, we put into practice the winning project "Corvo Island Dermatology". The project’s main objective was to perform a screening of the skin in an area of the country with difficult geographical accessibility to specialized health care. The island has a single doctor, a general practitioner - Dr. José Pinto Faustino. The screening was performed for 5 days, between 13 and 18 July 2015 in the Health Unit of Corvo. There were attended 120 people living on the island that were observed by 2 participant dermatologists. No skin diseases with statistical significance were detected.
