Improving Patient Outcomes
In our nationwide community of 8 million people living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis (PsA), far too many lack access to the health care resources, information, and education they need. NPF aims to change that.
In 2021, the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) secured a substantial grant from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to create better health outcomes for all those impacted by psoriatic disease. How? Through education for health care providers, especially in underserved communities, and by delivering up-to-date information on the chronic, body-wide nature of psoriasis and PsA.
The CDC grant, "Improving Patient Outcomes through Increased Awareness of Psoriasis as a Chronic Immune-Mediated Systemic Inflammatory Disease", helps NPF improve the quality of life and lifespan for people living with psoriasis and PsA by funding health care provider and community education, especially in underserved communities.
