Celebrating 50 years of patient support, advocacy, research funding, and education, the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is the world’s leading nonprofit fighting for individuals with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. NPF is on a continued mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and dramatically improve the lives of more than 8 million Americans affected by this chronic immune mediated disease. As part of that effort, the NPF created its Patient Navigation Center to offer personalized assistance to everyone impacted by psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. In addition, the NPF has funded more than $17 million in research grants and fellowships to date.
