    The Ohio AAP was fortunate to be able to continue to bring attention to atopic dermatitis, or eczema, which affects approximately 9.6 million individuals under the age of 18 in the U.S. In partnership with Pfizer Inc. and resource support from the National Eczema Association (NEA), the Ohio AAP led the second wave of the Atopic Dermatitis Quality Improvement (AD QI) program from Jan. – Oct. 2023.
