It’s here! Our winter issue of NEA Magazine has arrived. We have new stories about research, treatment, stories from the community and original artwork from our NEA community.
On page 6, Jodi Johnson, PhD, explains how the human skin microbiome changes with atopic dermatitis and how the bacteria on the skin’s surface interact with the immune system.
On page 17, Dr. Vivian Shi shares her expertise in our “Get the Facts: Honey and Eczema.” Medical-grade honey may be a helpful form of eczema treatment for certain types of eczema flares.
On page 14, Christy Cushing shares her journey to find an elusive trigger, nickel, which was triggering her eczema from an unlikely place: her utensils.
And on pages 22-23, we’re thrilled to feature original artwork and photography from our community of NEA artists. If you live with eczema, too, please consider submitting your own original artwork for our next magazine to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re looking for a good pair of winter gloves, we’ve got you covered on page 16, and if you’re interested in the NEA grant program check out our NEA researcher profiles on pages 26-27. Lastly, we’ve featured our latest installment of the research on the out-of-pocket costs associated with eczema and Black Americans on page 28.
Thanks for reading! And let us know if you have any feedback. We’re also eager to hear from our community and welcome any suggestions you have for future magazine stories.
