Instead, they changed it to National Psoriasis Action Month. The “…name change is more than symbolic. Mike Siegel, Ph.D., vice president of research for the NPF, sees the change as a chance to urge rheumatologists, dermatologists, and other physicians to aggressively treat psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.” Here are five things you can do to celebrate National Psoriasis Action Month:
