    About My Business
    The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is a non-profit, voluntary health agency dedicated to finding a cure for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and eliminating their devastating effects through research, advocacy and education.

    Founded in 1966, the Psoriasis Foundation has evolved to become the
    leading patient advocacy group for the 7.5 million Americans living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

    As emerging research continues to demonstrate the serious, systemic effects of these chronic autoimmune diseases, our highest priority is to find a cure.

    Guided by our five year-strategic plan, we are moving towards this goal with an integrated approach that leverages the work of members, health care providers, advocates and scientists in four critical areas:

    • Directly supporting the most promising early-stage research and emerging researchers.
    • Hosting the world’s largest bank of psoriasis DNA samples.

    • Advancing a public policy agenda to secure more federal funding for psoriasis research.
    • Improving access to care for patients.

    • Providing extensive patient education.
    • Keeping health care professionals up to date on psoriasis treatment.

    • Online communities, support networks, mentorship programs.
    • Building a grassroots network of volunteers and advocates.

    • A volunteer Board of Trustees steers the strategic direction of the National Psoriasis Foundation.
    • Our Medical Board, made up of leading national psoriasis experts, provides medical guidance, leadership and advocacy.
    • An executive staff of seasoned non-profit leaders drives the organization to achieve its strategic plan goals.
