Refusing to Hide — Simple Strategies for Living with Psoriasis
The presentation will provide facts about psoriasis as well as simple strategies for working with a dermatologist to manage the disease. Stephanie Kramer from AbbVie’s Psoriasis Patient Advocates Program will lead the presentation and provide free education, support and resources.
Psoriasis Patient Advocates are specially trained professionals with the latest knowledge about psoriasis, resources and support. The Psoriasis Patient Advocate Program is not a replacement for a medical professional or a dermatologist trained in treating psoriasis. Advocates will not provide medical advice, but will provide resources for attendees. Their goal is to help improve the understanding of psoriasis, so that patients can better manage their condition.
