Sheniz Moonie (Public Health), Rebecca Scherr, and Gayle Allenback (both Medicine), along with Julia Anderson, '19 PhD Public Health, and Mary Beth Hogan from the department of pediatrics at the Marshall University School of Medicine, published an article on "Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Comorbidities and Atopic Disease in Nevada" in the journal Diseases of the Esophagus

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a rare, immune-mediated illness. The authors aimed to examine the comorbidities and sensitization patterns associated with an EoE diagnosis in Nevada. The study goal was two-fold: to determine the most common EoE comorbidities and sequela in the state of Nevada using health care utilization records across all settings and to determine the most common food and aeroallergens in histologically positive EoE pediatric patients using clinical sensitization data.
