Burden of Pediatric Skin Disease — the “Big Study”

PeDRA is launching a cross-disease study to address the role of stigma in pediatric skin disorders – and how it relates to anxiety, depression, and social functioning of children with these diseases. Amy Paller and Sarah Chamlin of Northwestern University are the co-PIs. We are recruiting 3500 parent/child combinations in US and Canada.
