28 Instagram Accounts to Follow if You Have Vitiligo

For those with vitiligo, Instagram is often more than just a social network – it’s a way to find community, connection and support. At least that’s what University of Oregon graduate Elizabeth Witcher found in her recent study.

A sociology and psychology major living with vitiligo, Elizabeth used her senior thesis to do research that showed that social media – and specifically Instagram – provides a means of connection for those with vitiligo that is absent in the physical world.
