Health Report: Living with Psoriasis
Psoriasis is not a skin condition. It’s an auto-immune disease that affects 7.5 million Americans and can lead to a degenerative psoriatic arthritis.
Many people suffer in silence. Many do not get proper treatment.
There is a big psoriasis research event in a few weeks that will offer information and hope to many with this disease. Happening at Sanford Burnham Prebys, the event is sponsered by the National Psoriasis Foundation
Dr. Carl Ware, the Director of the Infectious and Inflammatory Disease Center at SBP, and Stephanie Waits, who has been living with this disease since she was a little girl, sat down with KUSI to talk more about the event.
