September 12, 2022 – The first of many games in the Eczema Counts series ended on August 30, 2022. Game 1: The Basics established the foundations of the eczema research process and how that research can translate to real world applications. The game is tailored so patients and caregivers can compete against each other, while researchers battle it out in their own category.
Congratulations to the top-place winners of Eczema Counts Game 1!
Top Three Patients/Caregivers:
- 1st Place: Amy Chrnelich
- 2nd Place: Claire Rozanski
- 3rd Place: Elizabeth Tindal
Top Three Researchers:
- 1st Place: Albert Yan, MD

Over 120 patients, caregivers, and researchers competed in Game 1, with more than 30 participants climbing to the top of the Game 1 Leaderboard and earning over 1,000 points.
Participants may continue to play Game 1 to learn more about the basics to set them up for success in future games and earn points on the All Time Points Leaderboard. Please note, Game 1 participant points earned after August 30 will not count toward the Game 1 Leaderboard. Game 2 will launch in late October.
Eczema Counts, a series of games and activities to engage patients, families, and researchers together in learning about patient-centered research in childhood eczema, was created in partnership between the National Eczema Association (NEA) and the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA), and is part of a portfolio of Eugene Washington Engagement Award projects that the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has funded to help develop a community of patients and other stakeholders equipped to participate as partners in comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) and disseminate PCORI-funded study results. Through the Engagement Award Program, PCORI is creating an expansive network of individuals, communities, and organizations interested in and able to participate in, share, and use patient-centered CER.
