The Psoriatic Disease Research Ambassadors (PDRA) are a nationwide group of specifically trained psoriatic disease patients who will help advance NPF’s patient-centered research initiatives. Research Ambassadors (RAs) will be selected in markets throughout the country to receive special training and education, provide in-person patient engagement with researchers, regular contact with NPF, and ongoing guidance for patient-centered research. RAs will conduct site visits with NPF-funded researchers in their region, regularly disseminate local research activities through social media and other channels, engage and mobilize patients in their community who are interested in research, and provide regular reports to NPF on all aspects of their activity.
