Sheniz Moonie, and Karen Gutierrez (both Environmental and Occupational Health), along with Julia Anderson, '19 PhD Public Health, co-authored a study on "Factors and Cost Associated with Atopic Dermatitis in Nevada" in the journal Postgraduate Medicine. Atopic dermatitis (AD), or eczema, is an inflammatory illness that impacts individuals of all ages. The cost of treating AD and the impact on the quality of life have not been well documented in Nevada. This study seeks to fill this gap by identifying factors that impact the cost of AD in the state utilizing clinical and patient demographics.
Gutierrez is a master of public health student.
