NPF In Your Area: Northeast Region 

Painful, disabling, uncomfortable and embarrassing: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis impact the lives of millions of Americans. Approximately 213,000 people in the Northeast Region have psoriasis and up to 63,000 have psoriatic arthritis. For these people in the Northeast Region and everyone else across the U.S. struggling with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, we must find a cure.

The priority of the National Psoriasis Foundation, Northeast Region is to give people the information and services they need to take control of their psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis, while increasing research to find a cure. If you or someone you love is affected by psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, join us to stop these devastating diseases.
