Oct 06 2021

Dear members of the IADVL,

An essay competition on 2 topics, namely ‘Moisturizer and elderly skin- Lifelong friends’ and ‘Skincare in elderly- an ignored domain’, was planned to mark the ‘International day of older persons’ as a part of the IADVL Eczema and Hydration Project. We received 58 entries. Of the 58 essays submitted, 15 were for ‘Moisturizer and elderly skin- Lifelong friends’ and 43 for ‘Skincare in elderly_an ignored domain’. The essays were judged by Dr Paschal D’souza (New Delhi), Dr Jacob Thomas (Kochi), Brigadier (Dr) Manas Chatterjee (Kolkata), Dr Suneil Gandhi (Surat), Dr Taru Garg (New Delhi) and Dr Dhanashree Bhide (Pune). Any judge who had a conflict of interest with any essay allotted to them recused themselves from evaluating those particular essays. The winners of the essay writing competition are as follows.
