Bid ambassadors

The Australian Bid Ambassadors are an experienced group of Australian professionals who will represent the Australian bid for the 2023 World Congress of Dermatology (WCD).

With a wealth of knowledge and experience between them, the team are well connected and well respected within the global dermatological community. They are as diverse as Australia itself, coming from a range of different backgrounds and specialisations, but they share a passion for shaping the future of dermatology.

Keep an eye out for our Ambassadors at upcoming dermatology meetings globally. They will be delighted to talk in more detail about the Australian bid and hear your thoughts on what you’d like to see at the 2023 World Congress.
