NPF In Your Area: Florida West Coast Division

Painful, disabling, uncomfortable and embarrassing: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis impact the lives of millions of Americans. Nearly 500,000 people in Florida have psoriasis and another 146,000 have psoriatic arthritis. For these Floridians 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 Florida West Coast 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.
