NPF In Your Area: Portland Division

Painful, disabling, uncomfortable and embarrassing: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis impact the lives of millions of Americans. Approximately 58,000 people in the Portland Metro area have psoriasis and up to 17,000 have psoriatic arthritis. For these Portlanders 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 Portland Division 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.
