NEA joined forces with the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA) to create Eczema Counts, a series of games and activities to engage patients, families and researchers together in learning about patient-centered research in childhood eczema.

Pediatric eczema is a complex disease with a growing list of treatment options. It’s also a disease that affects everyone differently and what works for one person might not work for another. The patient voice and perspective is a critical component of eczema research that fosters new understandings in treatment effectiveness and improves long-term health outcomes.

We think the more patients know about how research works, the more motivated they’ll be to share their voice. And, the more researchers incorporate patients’ experience in their work, the more likely it will revolutionize eczema care.

Over the course of eight sequential games, participants will grow their knowledge and compete against one another, all toward the ultimate goal of advancing pediatric eczema care. And they’ll earn points and win cool prizes!

The first game establishes the basics about what the eczema research process entails (hint: it’s not just clinical trials), and about how that research can translate to real world applications.
