AD awareness day at school

It is a research idea before implementation. If accepted, a partnership with my public health school (UC Berkeley) can be obtained.

Please elaborate on your proposed solution to the challenge in no more than 300 words.

I would interview the kids with AD before implementing awareness day at school and then a year after to understand if that has brought any change in their experience in terms of bullying and stress induced flare-ups. Awareness day at school will be aimed at raising awareness using multiple ways (pamphlets, posters, speeches, entertainment like raffle draw and quiz about AD with prizes for the winners).

Dear Ryan,
Thank you very much for taking the time out to check my research idea and sharing these valuable and very informative articles with me.
While I am still reading these, one article ( Appearance-related bullying and skin disorders - https://www.cidjournal.com/article/S0738-081X(11)00335-X/pdf )particularly caught my attention in defining my questions and indicators for survey (verbal aggression, physical aggression, and social exclusion.). I am going to design my survey and write a proposal if chosen to move forward.
If my research reveals that there are benefits in having a AD awareness day at school for the sufferers of this disease, I can use the result in policy information and expand it nationwide.
KR,
Maria Awan
