Social Competition Entry: Ending the eczema and allergy epidemic, without drugs or expensive interventions

I have entered SolveEczema.org in a healthcare competition – Innovations for Health – sponsored by the Ashoka and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations. It’s unlikely to win, but if the entry is well-received, I may make good connections or find resources to help further work in the future. The organizers have told entrants to reach out …

Where to Find Non-detergent Shampoo

When Solveeczema.org users ask me for choices in non-detergent shampoo, in the past, I had little to say. The best one I had tried was Cal-Ben’s.
