Hi! I am excited to announce that I will be running in the 2018 Goofy’s Race and Half during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in Orlando, Florida. I will be running in support for the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) an organization that supports medical research in the field. I am grateful that such an organization exists and am even more excited to be running for such a great cause.
I am fortunate to have been given the opportunity to study psoriasis as an early step in my career as a physician. Psoriasis, an immune-mediated skin disease that affects millions of people in the United States, may be something you have heard of, seen a commercial for, or maybe you or someone you know has been diagnosed with psoriasis. Already I have learned, and am convinced, that psoriasis deserves our attention. There have been leaps and bounds in the sphere of biomedical research in the past 10-years; and many of those discoveries have translated well to patient care. However, there is still much to know and many people to care for.
Please support my dream of a life free of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis by making a personal donation as I run with Team NPF Run.
All money raised by Team NPF Run provides people with psoriatic disease the services they need to live well, while funding research for a cure.
I am running to show thanks to the NPF and in support of all those psuper-heroes out there living with psoriasis. Please join me in supporting them.
Thank you so much for your support of this project that is so important to me.
