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.
Volunteer Orientation! - CANCELLED: Due to Ice Storm
The Volunteer Orientation scheduled for Tuesday, January 17 at 6:00 p.m. has been CANCELLED due to the Ice Storm Warning, ODOT’s request to stay off the roads and our desire to have everyone be safe the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF). We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you but we are much concerned about your safety and the safety of all who would be impacted by attending the meeting. We do plan to schedule another Volunteer Orientation in the near future so please continue to check this page for updated information.
Volunteer Orientations will give you a better understanding of the many different ways you can make a difference in driving efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected. A few of our Portland Division Board members will be present as well to talk about their experiences of volunteering and address questions you may have from someone who has volunteered for NPF. RSVP by emailing Brian Willms.
