Help reduce the impact of atopic dermatitis on family life
Organized by Sanofi Genzyme and Regeneron
Caregivers of children living with atopic dermatitis (AD) are constantly facing challenges associated with the disease. It can make daily tasks such as getting the child dressed, organizing their social life, or caring for siblings harder and, at times, may lead to sleeplessness and psychological stress [1-2]. How would you help support caregivers to reduce the impact of AD on their family life?
It's clear families with AD need more support and now is the time to act. That's why the 2021' Agents of Change' AD Challenge is focused on helping reduce the impact of AD on family life.
We're calling on people around the world to come up with ideas, big or small, to help support families dealing with the daily struggles of this complex chronic disease.
Grant recipients have the opportunity to receive funding of up to $10,000 to support the development and implementation of their proposed solution. Grant funding provided will vary based on the scale of the idea submitted.
