Are you living with plaque psoriasis?

The National Psoriasis Foundation wants to improve the lives of people living with plaque psoriasis. You can help, and earn up to $100, by joining a new clinical trial that studies the impact of psoriasis education on treatment outcomes and overall quality of life. You will not have to switch treatments.

Why should I participate?

• Get compensated $25 every three months, while enabling health care providers learn how to best care for their patients. (A total of $100 for participation.)

• Contribute to our understanding of psoriasis and help others living with the disease.

• You may be asked to read or watch some educational resources, have a phone call with an NPF patient navigator, and bring materials to visits with your health care provider to incorporate into your regular care.

• You will be compensated with a gift card every three months of active participation.
