Today marks the ten-year anniversary of World Psoriasis Day, a day with four goals: raise awareness for the condition, improve access to treatment, increase understanding of known information and build unity among the global psoriasis community.
And after ten years of raising awareness, it’s time to step it up a notch. Tomorrow, the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) is going to create a tidal wave of awareness on social media with their “Thunderclap” campaign. Join in here or click the sidebar on the right. When you join the movement, a World Psoriasis Day message will automatically be posted on your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account at 12:00pm Central European Time (7:00am on the east coast). You can share your own message with the #psoriasis and #WPD14 hashtags as well.
Check out some of our past posts on psoriasis, including the results of our “Uncovering Psoriasis” surveys, patient interviews (with Maria, David and Erica) and what doctors Jerry Bagel and Steve Feldman had to say about psoriasis. And if you’re living with psoriasis, don’t forget to connect with the community at PatientsLikeMe – more than 4,800 people are sharing their experiences and stories with each other.
