I was fortunate enough to be invited by Mr Kostas Giotis, Founder of DHI Global to the 25th DHI Annual Masters Meeting in Athens to discover the latest innovations, research and developments in Hair Restoration Surgery,
The 26th Masters Academy Meeting was conducted with great success in Athens on the 1st and the 2nd of June 2018. The conference featured a thoroughly interesting and action packed agenda and was an unmissable opportunity for academics, scientists, doctors and partners of the Group, from all around the globe to catch up on some new, innovative DHI programmes, and be part of a 2-day ‘Hands On’ event dedicated to the Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment of Hair loss.
As Founder and Ambassador of Safety in Beauty, I was incredibly privileged to be given an exclusive insight in a new unique comprehensive consultation pathway, which assures the patient of secure systems implemented on a bespoke basis for future hair health care with a secure system of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
During this year’s Academy Masters Meeting, the Medical School of The University of Athens honoured Mr. Konstantinos Giotis, the founder of DHI, for his lifelong contribution to the field of diagnosis, prevention and treatment of Alopecia and of hair and scalp disorders. The award was given to Mr. Giotis by the Honourable, Prof. of Psychiatry, Charalampos Papageorgiou, in the ‘Ioannis Drakopoulos’ amphitheatre of the University, where everyone had a chance to congratulate Mr Giotis and be part of such an important event. This was a historic first, where a Greek University acknowledges the impact of an individual in the field of hair implantation and restoration.
