Hello! We’re the National Eczema Association
We’re here because you’re here. We are the voice, the resource and the hub for the more than 30 million Americans and their families who are living with eczema.
The National Eczema Association (NEA) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to improve the health and quality of life for individuals with eczema through research, support, and education.
This means that day in and day out, NEA provides people with eczema the information they need to best manage their condition, while fast-tracking research towards better treatments and a cure.
In 2015, we launched an aggressive strategic plan with the goal of improving the health and well-being of people with eczema. Guided by five pillars, or “transformational keys,” NEA seeks to:
- Break through negative stereotypes to promote understanding of eczema and reduce burden of disease for patients;
- Equip medical practices for the new era of eczema care;
- Promote new models of care to better leverage resources;
- Focus the NEA research agenda on high-value/high-yield projects;
- Advocate for accessible and affordable eczema treatments.
It’s a big challenge, but we’ve got millions on our side.
We’ve got the best in the business our side, too. Starting with our national volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of people with first-hand experience of eczema. Our board includes patients, parents, doctors and nurses – all dedicated to helping to make the world better for people with eczema.
Our volunteer Scientific Advisory Committee is made up of the top researchers and clinicians in eczema. The advisory board guides us in research, patient and professional education and everything else related to eczema science and medicine.
On the ground is NEA’s staff – a group of non-profit professionals dedicated to the success of our organization and the people we serve.
Last – but never, ever least – are the hundreds of NEA volunteers who are out in their communities and beyond raising money and awareness for our collective cause.
