PsA Q&A with rheumatologist R. Peter Bonafede

| Katherine Southwick

As part of NPF’s first-ever PsA Action Week, we hosted a special Facebook Live interview with R. Peter Bonafede, M.D., of the Providence Arthritis Center at Providence Medical Center in Portland, Oregon. Watch Dr. Bonafede share expert advice about living with psoriatic arthritis and answer questions from NPF’s Facebook community.

(If you’re living with PsA, NPF has just the resource for you! May is Arthritis Awareness Month, and we're giving out special toolkits to help you live, work and play with PsA. Tell us how psoriatic arthritis affects your life, and an NPF Patient Navigator will handpick resources for your personalized kit.)

Watch the video!

If you have additional questions about finding a rheumatologist, accessing PsA treatments or learning more about the disease, send them to NPF’s Patient Navigation Center.

Note: This video originally streamed as a Facebook Live broadcast on May 5, 2017. We've added it here so that you can watch it on NPF's Blog.
