NPF In Your Area: Northern California Division
Psoriasis can be painful, disabling, uncomfortable and embarrassing. Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis impact the lives of approximately 351,000 people in Northern California have psoriasis and up to 105,000 have psoriatic arthritis. For these Californians and everyone else across the U.S. struggling with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, we must find a cure.
The priority of the National Psoriasis Foundation Northern California Division is to give people the information and services they need to take control of their psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis, while increasing research to find a cure. If you or someone you love is affected by psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, join us to stop these devastating diseases.
