NPF Medical Professional Award Program

In recognition of the medical professionals who work tirelessly to better patient outcomes and promote a cure, the National Psoriasis Foundation has created the NPF Medical Professional Awards program. These awards recognize clinicians who have made a significant impact on the psoriatic disease field. Through their efforts, they have joined the NPF in our mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected.
