For the 8 MILLION Americans affected by psoriasis, managing the condition can be a daily challenge. But this chronic disease doesn’t have to sideline you if you’re armed with the latest information on managing and treating it.

This post provides a list of links from three trusted organizations you can use to educate yourself about the disease and its triggers, treatments, and support networks.
