The NPF’s Advocacy and Government Relations strategy is solid, but to succeed we need YOUR involvement. While we can, and do, bring compelling information on the science of psoriatic disease in to meetings with decision-makers, it is the real-life experiences of what living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis is like that compels these individuals to take action on our requests. We know that it is frustrating to live with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. We also know that solutions to those frustrations are within our grasp – better insurance design, affordable health policies and therapies, and health insurance benefits that are accessible. Join us in our efforts to improve the health outcomes for all individuals living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis!
Elected officials are your voice in Washington, D.C. and in your statehouse. So make sure they know what you are interested in! Members of Congress and State Legislators want to hear from you, their constituent, about your concerns on issues they are considering. The Good News? The NPF has a system that makes it easy for you to share your perspectives with your elected officials! When Congress or State Legislatures are considering an issue of importance to our community, we develop a template letter for you to use to contact them. All you need to do is enter your name and contact information and a letter will be drafted for you to customize and send in. You don’t even need to know the names of your elected officials or their email. We will do that for you!
