The CSPA community consists of individuals, affiliate groups, health-care providers with an interest in skin health and health-care decision-makers from across Canada. Through the CSPA conference and special events and meetings hosted by the CSPA, interested parties can meet, exchange ideas and create supportive relationships.
By becoming an active participant in CSPA programs, you will enjoy the benefits of community of patients who understand what you're going through. You will also help us increase our clout with politicians and decision-makers. Together we help each other by being part of a growing resource for all Canadians with skin conditions.
