Survey shows impact of psoriasis is more than skin deep

Self-confidence, Relationships, Work/School, and Social Interactions Affected

The National Psoriasis Foundation, The Dermatology Nurses Association, dermatologists and people with psoriasis join forces to launch Beyond Psoriasis: The Person Behind the Patient

Psoriasis is a chronic, life-altering disease that affects more than 4.5 million adults or 1 in 50 people in the United States.

Beyond PsoriasisSM: The Person Behind the Patient, is a unique collaboration of health providers, advocates and people with psoriasis including the National Psoriasis Foundation and the Dermatology Nurses Association (DNA). The new program launched today at the 62nd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).

This survey validates the need for an understanding about how psoriasis can impact a patient's social life and emotional and physical well-being," said Alan Menter, MD, Chief of the Division of Dermatology at Baylor University Medical Center and a member of the Beyond Psoriasis Advisory Board. "I am committed to this program and its objectives to provide education, sensitivity and support to these individuals similar to what is available for other chronic diseases like heart disease or arthritis
