If you were able to attend the 2012 annual meeting of the AAD in San Diego you would have been able to attend the following discussion group on Rosacea.  The director of the session, Prof. Powell is known to rosacea sufferers because of his excellent book Rosacea Diagnosis and Management.

Powell has been a consultant dermatologist at the Mater Private Hospital in Dublin, Ireland for 25 years. He has received rosacea research grants from the NRS, has been on the Medical Advisory Board of the NRS since 2000 and was also a co-author of the ground-breaking Standard Classification of Rosacea and the companion Standard Granding System for Rosacea.

Even though you may not have been able to sit in on the discussion, you can still benefit from reading his book.
