Ms. Paige Clarke-Jeffers announces the enrollment of Black women with all forms of alopecia areata in her research project: “Black Women’s Experiences of Living with Alopecia” at Birmingham City University, United Kingdom. The study is for her Masters of Health Psychology dissertation.
Please take action TODAY to make the most of this inspiring moment for all of us living with AA.

Memo to: Awesome Bald Girls Do Lunch community
Your voices about life with alopecia areata, the ‘voice of the patient’, gains influence inÂ today’s dermatology research. Your participation is the backbone of Bald Girls Do Lunch. You tell us what impacts you most.
“The candor and sheer guts of the BGDL community was top of my mind,” reports Thea Chassin.
You’re not alone if you’re wondering how do I cope with alopecia areata knowing there’s no alopecia cure? One way to feel supported is right here: watching and reading personal storiesÂ Â â€” people like yourself living with alopecia.
WatchÂ Shannon’s heartfelt story: how she talks to herself and to others.
We thank Concert Pharmaceuticals for including our Bald GirlsÂ ambassador, Shannon, in their patient web portal for alopecia areata at ConcertPharma.com/patients/
