Q&A on psoriasis, family and fatherhood

| Katherine Southwick

Editor's note: In honor of Men's Health Month, NPF is telling stories of men living with psoriatic disease. Here, we talk to Chris Pettit about being a father, raising a family and living with psoriasis.

On Thursday, June 15, NPF hosted a special Facebook Live interview with volunteer, Chris Pettit, and his wife, Corene Pettit. In this interview, Chris and Corene discussed how they talk to their children about psoriasis, shared questions they receive as a married couple, and offered tips for other parents. (If you or a loved one is living with psoriatic disease and has questions, NPF is here to help. Ask us a question.)

Watch highlights from the video interview!
