Through its new partnership with ReSurge International, SkinCeuticals announces an initiative for Pioneering Women in Reconstructive Surgery, to technically train, professionally mentor, and develop in leadership first generation female surgeons in order to increase access to reconstructive surgical care in
under-served parts of the world. The program is led by Dr. James Chang, who serves as the consulting medical officer for Resurge International and is Stanford University's chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Says Dr. Chang of the program, "These women are not only learning surgical skills, but how to navigate a male-dominated field, with specialty curriculum in reconstructive surgery and career advancement through our partnership with SkinCeuticals." Leslie Harris, global general manager of SkinCeuticals, adds, "Today, reconstructive surgical care is out of reach for two-thirds of the population. If we want to change this statistic, we need to change the number of women surgeons in low income countries who often face unique barriers to entering the field. We are honored to partner with Resurge International in the years to come."
