We’re here because you’re here. We are the voice, the resource and the hub for the more than 31 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.
NEA embraces the following core values:
Visionary: we embrace the future and are passionate leaders
Authentic: we are “all in” for the NEA community
Compassionate: we have genuine heart and respect for individuals and relationships
Supportive: we empower one another and seek collaboration
Responsive: we are organizationally nimble and agile
Accountable: we are honest, trustworthy and transparent
Transformative: we think big, takes risks, and create innovative change
In 2015, we launched an aggressive strategic plan titled “The Roadmap to Advocacy” with the goal of improving the health and well-being of people with eczema. Key impacts of the 2015 strategic plan include:
Over the next two years, 2019-2020, NEA’s strategic plan promises the following key impacts: Eczema will be better understood as the serious disease it is – driven by expanded research and the contributions of empowered community members. Patients will increasingly be active partners in their own care.
People with eczema will be more connected to the community and the support they need and deserve. NEA’s commitment to people living with eczema will improve lives.
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 & Medical Advisory Council 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.
