UCB go ‘Under the Skin’ with new hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) podcast

Posted by
Chiara Danelli, HS Dermatology

As part of UCB’s commitment to raising the standard of care for patients suffering with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), ‘Under the Skin’, UCB’s latest podcast series, draws back the curtain on this debilitating, chronic inflammatory skin disease. Aimed at healthcare professionals looking to learn more about HS, this podcast aims to shed light on this under-recognised disease, following the often complex patient journey from pre-diagnosis through to disease management. Hosted by Dr Barry McGrath (HS patient advocate and co-founder of HS Ireland) each episode in this five-part series invites a new expert guest to share their knowledge of treating HS and to discuss one of the many facets of the patient experience. 

All currently available episodes are listed below, and you can subscribe to the series on Spotify to catch all episodes as they’re released.
