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.

Hey Heyi,

This is a great idea. While this would definitely inform people about atopic dermatitis, can you elaborate on how that would decrease bullying? How would the posters be formatted to make the condition something that people wouldn't make fun of, nor be ashamed of?
