Improved Online Resource Launches For Clients With Psoriasis

Posted: January 21, 2011

TalkPsoriasis, the largest online community for people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, recently received a new look and improved features with the launch of the site on Inspire.com—a platform that connects patients, families, friends, caregivers and health professionals for health and wellness support through safe and secure online support groups.

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% 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:

"We are proud to partner with National Psoriasis Foundation to assist its goals to build the strongest, most supportive online psoriasis community," said Inspire CEO Brian Loew. "This is the result of strong collaboration, and we look forward to more great things to come from this alliance."
