The National Eczema Association (NEA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to informing, educating, and providing resources for individuals affected by eczema; increase public awareness of the disease; support research to discover the cause, treatment, and cure of atopic dermatitis-eczema; and represent individuals with eczema in order to help improve their quality of life. Atopic Dermatitis-Eczema is a disease that causes itchy, inflamed skin that most typically affects the insides of the elbows, backs of the knees and the face, but can cover most of the body. NEA was established in 1988 in Portland, Oregon by a group of affected individuals, nurses, doctors, and others concerned with the enormous social, medical, and economic consequences of this disease. A Board of Directors governs NEA. A Scientific Advisory Committee comprised of physicians and scientists who donate their time and expertise guides the Association. Consisting of 3,000 members and eight chapters, the Association produces educational materials including a brochure entitled "All About Atopic Dermatitis," a video entitled "Suffering in Silence," and a newsletter entitled "The Advocate." Programs and activities include a support group, patient advocacy, patient networking, education, and the support of research.
