Panel Presentation on the Stigma of Hair Loss

NRCI hosted a panel presentation on the stigma of hair loss at the Chicago School.  This physical condition makes a significant impact on a person’s mental health, and NRCI explored the issue from three different perspectives: alopecia (with Kellie Leeper from the Suburban-Chicago Alopecia Support Group), chemotherapy (with Jamie Mazer from Gilda’s Club), and trichotillomania (with Jane Bodine from the Trichotillomania Support Group of Greater Chicago).  The three panelists shared insight on each of their fields of expertise, including treatments, coping mechanisms, available support systems, different approaches for different age groups, and the like.
