NEA Ambassadors can check another accomplishment off their list.
Since early 2022 NEA Ambassadors have been advocating with various congressional members (including sharing their personal stories as part of Virtual Hill Day in June) to elevate awareness of and investment in eczema.
One priority was to ensure eczema would be added as an eligible condition for research funding through the Department of Defense (DOD) Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP) as FY23 appropriations were finalized.
As a direct result, eczema has been added to the FY23 appropriations. This means, for the first time, eczema researchers can submit projects for DOD funding. Proposals are currently being accepted across six different award types with deadlines for letters of intent or pre-proposals beginning on March 29, 2023.
