Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America & PlatformQ Health to Share Live-Online Patient Education Program on Eczema
Date:11/7/2018

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and PlatformQ Health have partnered to produce a new live-online program designed for people managing ezema. Eczema: A Potential Lifetime of Itch, will stream live-online November 8, 2018 at 3pm ET and be available on demand through November 2019. To encourage patients to become active participants in their health, the program will feature a live panel discussion showcasing patient, advocate, and expert clinician perspectives, real-time Q&A, audience polls, and more. Participants have already begun submitting questions for the panel on the program’s “QBoard”.

“Eczema brings tremendous suffering for affected patients and families. We hope this program will educate and empower patients about eczema, separating fact from fiction, and showcasing the new horizon for treatment and understanding of this disease,” remarked Dr. Peter Lio of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, course chair and moderator for the upcoming session. “By shining a light on eczema, it is our hope that more patients will seek safe and effective treatments and more practitioners will be interested in learning about them as well.”

In addition to Dr. Lio, the panel for the program will include Lidia Pomaville, PC-A, Physician Assistant at Forefront Dermatology & Adjunct Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Physician Assistant Studies at Marquette University, Sanaz Eftekhari, Director of Corporate Affairs at AAFA, and a patient presenter, who will share insights and personal experiences with her co-presenters and peer learners. The one-hour program will focus on

  • What causes eczema in the human body
  • What types of medicines and lifestyle habits can help manage eczema
  • How to communicate with health care professionals, and participate in treatment decisions
  • Other conditions that often come along with eczema
  • Social and financial burdens than can accompany eczema, and how to address them

“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America on this program, to bring approachable and accurate education to people living with Eczema,” said PlatformQ Health SVP of Education Kathryn Pucci. “Across all our patient channels, we work with the country’s top specialists and real patients to help affected communities gain the right knowledge so they can participate and make good healthcare decisions. AAFA’s commitment to delivering patient-centric resources and practical help is inspiring people and improving their lives.”

Sanaz Eftekhari, program panelist and representative from AAFA, echoed her excitement. “I am proud to join a distinguished panel to help share resources, insights and clinical information about eczema. We hope to empower people living with eczema to become active participants in their health and live their best life. We are thrilled to find a partner in PlatformQ Health, who is driving innovation in education, to deliver the best information directly to the people living with their disease.”

This activity is supported by an educational grant from Sanofi Genzyme and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
