TalkPsoriasis will better serve its community with more features and connections
PORTLAND, Ore. Jan. 20, 2011
TalkPsoriasis connects nearly 1 million individuals annually and provides information and support about psoriasis—a chronic, noncontagious disease of the immune system that appears on the skin, affecting as many as 7.5 million Americans—and psoriatic arthritis, a related joint condition that affects up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis.
"The decision to update the TalkPsoriasis platform was rooted in our vision to provide a truly individualized online psoriasis community for our constituents," said Nicora Gardner, associate director of outreach for the National Psoriasis Foundation. "The site makeover will provide better and more personal support to the thousands of people who use the forum each day."
Key features of the newly enhanced TalkPsoriasis include:
- Better organization, posting and search functions, so users can easily find and comment on the topics they are following;
- Improved privacy controls to allow participants the ability to show only the comments they want to their friends, the TalkPsoriasis community or the public;
- A decade’s worth of informational posts about psoriatic disease from the original TalkPsoriasis platform;
- Up-to-the-minute information on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis clinical trial recruitment.
