Psoriasis Awareness Week runs annually and aims to inform and raise awareness of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. This year the awareness week is running from Sunday 29th October through til Saturday 4th November and talkhealth are working to support Psoriasis Association with their awareness activities.
The main campaign launching this year is #PsoriasisIS – a campaign to encourage everyone with experience of psoriasis to speak up about what the condition means to them. Whether you have psoriasis yourself, are a medical professional who treats people with psoriasis, a researcher who studies the condition, or a person who supports a loved one who lives with psoriasis.
Some ideas might be:
PsoriasIS… Something I wish I knew more about
