August is Psoriasis Awareness Month! Throughout the month, OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy will be sharing a series of articles for treating and managing psoriasis in an effort to raise awareness, promote education and dispel myths about the disease that affects 7.5 to 8.5 million people in the United States.
Psoriasis Awareness Month is acknowledged each year by the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF), the world’s largest non-profit dedicated to people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. NPF’s priority is to provide the services people need to take control of their condition, while increasing research to find a cure. In addition to serving more than 2.1 million people annually through health education and advocacy initiatives, NPF has funded more than $13 million in research grants and fellowships.
OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy is a privately-held healthcare entity that is uniquely qualified to meet the particular needs of individuals diagnosed with psoriasis.
