BT Young Scientist Project on Psoriasis

What follows is an important message from one of the six groups of TY students from  Millstreet Community School who have qualified for the BT Young Scientist Exhibition which will be held in Dublin in January 2019.  They are hoping that you will be able to assist them.  Thank you, in advance…

Our project has been selected for the BT Young Scientist competition, The title of the project is ” The effects of psoriasis on adolescent mental health in 2018″  As a teenager with the condition, the topic is of personal interest to a group member and we believe that the stress it causes is overlooked in its treatment. We are interested in finding how other young people deal with the condition and would appreciate if you could complete the below survey.  Thank you.  Hannah Keane and Ria Buckley.
