National Psoriasis Foundation launches message board on Inspire.com

TalkPsoriasis will better serve its community with more features and connections

In January 2011, TalkPsoriasis, the largest online community for people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, received a new look and improved features when it launched on Inspire.com—a platform that connects patients, families, friends, caregivers and health professionals for health and wellness support through safe and secure online support groups.

TalkPsoriasis connects nearly 1 million people annually and provides information and support about psoriasis—a chronic, noncontagious disease of the immune system that appears on the skin—and psoriatic arthritis, a related condition that affects up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis.

The National Psoriasis Foundation decided to update the TalkPsoriasis platform in order to provide a truly individualized online psoriasis community for its constituents.

Key features of the newly enhanced TalkPsoriasis include:

  • Better organization, posting and search functions, so users can easily find and comment on the topics they are following;
  • A decade's worth of informational posts about psoriatic arthritis from the original TalkPsoriasis platform;
  • Up-to-the-minute information on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis clinical trial recruitment.

About the National Psoriasis Foundation

Over the last 50 years, the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) has become the world’s leading nonprofit patient advocacy organization fighting for individuals with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. NPF leads this fight by driving efforts for a cure and improving the lives of the more than 8 million Americans affected by this chronic disease. To date, NPF has funded more than $15 million in research grants and fellowships, and to commemorate 50 years, NPF plans to raise an additional $2 million for early scientific career research programs in 2017 alone. Each year, NPF strives to support, educate and advocate on behalf of more individuals living with or caring for someone with the disease than ever before. As part of that effort, NPF established the Patient Navigation Center to offer personalized assistance to everyone with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. Join our community today and help drive discovery and create community for all living with psoriatic disease.
