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

In a hospital or medical center, you can display posters about atopic dermatitis. You can also display atopic dermatitis on television. This allows people who come in and out of the hospital to be aware of the problem. The purpose of this is to educate the public about AD, and to tell the public what the negative effects of bullying these people will be.In addition, educational lectures can be held in schools to form a consensus among children and youth groups.

Hi Heyi,

Thank you for your submission! I’m curious to know about why you picked hospitals and medical centers especially for the posters, I think it’s a great idea, but would love to know you’re thinking behind it!

Also, would love to see if you have some sketches or rough ideas for how you picture the posters and awareness campaigns! You can use the ‘add images’ section on the submission form to upload them!

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Ryan,

The reasons why I choose hospitals and medical centres are as follows:
1. There will be patients with similar skin diseases who will empathize with the difficulties of AD patients.
2. If other patients pay attention to this poster and need a professional explanation, a professional doctor in the hospital or medical centre can give a reliable explanation for AD symptoms.
3. This information can be passed on to their friends or family later.
4. The poster is a light way to read, simple and clear. Patients who come to the hospital have to wait a while to see a doctor. During this time, they can read the information on the poster to pass the time.

Also,l have submitted 4 poster sketches l designed. I hope my answers will make you understand better about my ideas.

Thank you,
