Eyal Ofir Elected to National Psoriasis Foundation Board of Directors

Portland, Ore. (March 27, 2017)—In recognition of his dedication to helping people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis as both a volunteer and donor, the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) has elected Eyal Ofir of Manhattan, New York, to its board of directors.

Ofir, who works in finance in New York City, has had psoriasis since he was a child. Wanting to give back in a meaningful way, Ofir became an active member of the NPF New York Division in 2016, and has since worked to raise the profile of psoriatic disease through fundraising and advocacy efforts for the Foundation.

In his role as a volunteer member of the national NPF Board of Directors, Ofir will join the finance committee and help direct the organization by evaluating and approving long-term plans, determining goals and assisting with financial oversight.

National board members also work with Randy Beranek, NPF president and CEO, to accomplish the organization's overall goals. To learn more about the NPF board of directors, visit: www.psoriasis.org/about-us/leadership/board-of-directors
