Learning Disability and Eczema

New research suggests a link between eczema and learning disabilities in children. But how can we tease out the effect of itch, sleep, treatment and other factors to know if the learning disability is real? Join us for this enlightening discussion with Dr. Joy Wan, dermatologist and researcher with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and lead author on a recently published study that looked at this complicated relationship. 

Research referenced in this episode:
