Rep. Wu reintroduced the bill two weeks before 100 National Psoriasis Foundation advocates visit with their elected officials on Capitol Hill to urge their support for improved access to care and increased biomedical research funding to find a cure.

Volunteers from 26 states will participate on Monday, Feb. 23, for Capitol Hill Day, the annual two-day event that brings Psoriasis Foundation volunteers to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness among U.S. senators and representatives about the need for a cure. Efforts at past Capitol Hill Day events were instrumental in securing broad bipartisan support for the psoriasis bill.
