Atopic Dermatitis

The Atopic Dermatitis (AD) Quality Improvement Program provides education and training on improving recognition, diagnosis and management of AD in the pediatric primary care setting. Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, affects 12% of children in Ohio. Many pediatricians do not feel prepared to treat AD and there are very few pediatric dermatologists in Ohio. The Ohio AAP works to provide education and resources to providers in Ohio, and beyond, to positively impact as many children as possible.
