Description

The National Eczema Association (NEA) is a national, patient-oriented organization working to improve the health and the quality of life of all persons living with atopic dermatitis/eczema. NEA provides emotional support, information, and resources to those who have the disease as well as their loved ones, while raising public awareness of the disease. In addition, NEA supports patients through public advocacy and research efforts. Grants are available from NEA to support research in atopic dermatitis. NEA organizes and hosts an annual conference sought to equip patients, their families, and friends to deal with eczema with increased knowledge.

Print Resources

The brochure describes and depicts what eczema means to children and gathers their thoughts and pictures. NEA has developed a special “School Pack” for parents and teachers to help children cope with the effects that eczema can have on them at school.
