Hair Club® marks its 10th year of partnership with the Trichotillomania Learning Center (TLC) as title sponsor of the organization’s 20th Annual National Conference, to take place April 19-21, 2013, at the Renaissance Newark Hotel, New Jersey.
As North America’s largest provider of all proven hair restoration services, Hair Club® offers unrivaled expertise in treating men, women and children experiencing hair loss due to a range of diseases and disorders, including trichotillomania. Since its founding in 1976, Hair Club® has helped more than 500,000 men, women and children of all ages regain their self-confidence through hair restoration services.
During that time, the company has offered support to a number of non-profits working to help those experiencing hair loss as a result of disease or medical treatment, including The Children’s Alopecia Project, the American Cancer Society and TLC.
“We are proud to be a part of this annual event to support the work of TLC,” states Darryll Porter, President and CEO of Hair Club®. “The mission of TLC is well aligned with our company’s work, helping to raise awareness of this condition, shed light on treatment options and to help increase the self-esteem and positive image of sufferers.”
TLC is the only national organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life of the millions of children, adolescents and adults who suffer from trichotillomania (more commonly understood as hair pulling) and skin picking. The TLC Annual Conference offers a comprehensive schedule of seminars by the world’s leading experts in this field, providing education and inspiration to hundreds of sufferers of all ages, researchers and treatment professionals.
Hair Club® will be offering on-site information for trichotillomania sufferers and demonstrating the company’s range of treatment options, including its proprietary non-surgical BioMatrix Strand-by-Strand® process.
Further, the company will be representing its charitable program, Hair Club for Kids, which provides complimentary hair restoration services for children aged 6-17 experiencing hair loss due to a range of diseases and disorders, including cancer, trichotillomania, and alopecia. Throughout the past 20 years, Hair Club® for Kids has allotted funds and resources to help nearly 10,000 children.
