dc.description.abstractThe project objectives were to create and distribute an educational fact sheet, which would advocate for cranial prosthetics to be covered by the health insurance of those suffering from Alopecia. Information on the fact sheet included disease definition, treatment options, incidence rates, and current legislation as well as the importance of cranial scalp prostheses for those with Alopecia. The fact sheet was distributed to university students and members of the Massachusetts State Senate as well as shared through various social media platforms. The distribution of the fact sheet to educate others was one component in contributing to the advocacy of Bill S.701. Bill S.701 was not passed before the conclusion of this project.
