During this annual PsA Action Month, the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is pleased to announce the first NPF Rheumatology Fellows’ Meeting.

“We are thrilled to host the first annual NPF Rheumatology Fellows’ Meeting this October in Washington, D.C. The National Psoriasis Foundation recognizes the need to train and inform the next generation of providers that will care for people with psoriatic arthritis for decades to come,” said Alice B. Gottlieb, M.D., Ph.D., Medical Director at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Dermatology. “We are improving the standard of care for people with psoriatic disease by supporting and educating these early career rheumatologists.”

Rheumatology leaders and experts will gather in Washington, D.C. on October 7 and 8 to educate and connect with the next generation of rheumatologic care providers. The meeting will be held alongside the NPF Research Symposium: A Cure for All, and the 25th anniversary NPF Dermatology Residents’ Meeting.

“We have a long history of connecting early career health care providers and researchers with experts and established leaders to pass along essential knowledge that leads to better care for people with psoriatic disease,” said Guy Eakin, Ph.D., the Chief Scientific and Medical Officer of NPF. “Psoriatic arthritis is incredibly impactful and can very negatively affect those who live with this chronic immune-mediated disease. Educating future rheumatologists will help ensure a high standard of care for these people who need it dearly.”
