The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF), founded over 55 years ago, is now the leading patient advocacy group for the more than 8 million people in the U.S. living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis, once thought of as "just a skin condition," is now known to be a chronic immune-mediated disease associated with inflammation throughout the body.
When NPF was founded there were few treatment options and little research being done on the disease. Since that time, several new classes of therapies have been created and new treatments are becoming available all the time. Because of this constantly changing landscape, and NPF's mission to improve the lives of those affected by psoriatic disease, the continuing education of health care providers is essential.
Professional Members of NPF receive the most up-to-date information about psoriatic disease, from diagnosis and treatment to patient resources and improving access to health care. The Credly Professional Membership badge indicates that a health care professional is dedicated to improving the management and care of those with psoriatic disease.
