In a striking message titled "A Letter to the Canadian Public from Dermatologists on the Reality of Race, Ethnicity and Racial Attitudes," the doctors explain the scientific basis for the differences in skin tones and hues among different ethnic groups.
They write: "While each skin type has its own structures and characteristics, it is a long-established principle of science that no skin type or hue is superior to another." The doctors add, "We also know that melanin variations in the skin may represent the very least of peoples' differences."

The statement, appearing in the Aug. 8 issue of the National Post, was contributed by the organizers of an annual medical conference on the treatment of skin diseases in Canadian patients of colour. The sixth annual "Skin Spectrum Summit" will begin on October 1, 2020, and will take place as a series of online "virtual" meetings.
The conference is organized by Chronicle Companies, a Toronto-based medical communications company. More than 300 healthcare professionals are expected to attend this year's event.
According to Dr. Gary Sibbald, Mississauga, Ont. dermatologist and curriculum chair of the conference, during the Summit physicians will discuss presentations on disorders that are particular to each of the six skin tone categories of the Fitzpatrick Scale, which classifies patients into "types," ranging from the lightest (Type 1) to the most richly pigmented skin (Type 6.)
While the Summit focuses on skin science, clinical education, and therapeutics, doctors also weigh cultural factors when considering diagnosis and treatment for patients of different skin types and ethnicities. This "culturally competent care" is sometimes called ethnic-sensitive practice, or Ethnodermatology, according to Dr. Andrew F. Alexis, a New York-based Canadian dermatologist who is a founding faculty member of Skin Spectrum Summit.

Awareness of the disparities in healthcare provided to different populations has been heightened through recent events. Dr. Sibbald points to U.S. data revealing African Americans die at a much higher rate from Covid-19-related illnesses than Caucasians. Public outrage in the aftermath of the May 25 death of George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police has also brought the issue to the fore. "In Canada, there are also racial disparities that require public attention and political solutions," he said.
The dermatologists' statement was joined by the Black Physicians Association of Ontario, and 18 supporting national pharmaceutical and health products manufacturers.
