Panelists will focus on the challenges physicians face in recognizing systemic diseases in melanin-rich skin types. There can be delays and misdiagnosis of life-threatening diseases when color changes related to the disease are not recognized. The skin signs of COVID-19 co-morbidities, ie, diabetes and pulmonary disease, will be discussed in adults and children.
