National Psoriasis Foundation launches message board on Inspire.com
TalkPsoriasis will better serve its community with more features and connections
In January 2011, TalkPsoriasis, the largest online community for people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, received a new look and improved features when it launched on Inspire.com—a platform that connects patients, families, friends, caregivers and health professionals for health and wellness support through safe and secure online support groups.
TalkPsoriasis connects nearly 1 million people annually and provides information and support about psoriasis—a chronic, noncontagious disease of the immune system that appears on the skin—and psoriatic arthritis, a related condition that affects up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis.
The National Psoriasis Foundation decided to update the TalkPsoriasis platform in order to provide a truly individualized online psoriasis community for its constituents.
Key features of the newly enhanced TalkPsoriasis include:
- Better organization, posting and search functions, so users can easily find and comment on the topics they are following;
- A decade's worth of informational posts about psoriatic arthritis from the original TalkPsoriasis platform;
- Up-to-the-minute information on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis clinical trial recruitment.
