NPF In Your Area: South Florida Division
Serving Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties
Painful, disabling, uncomfortable and embarrassing: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis impact the lives of millions of Americans. Nearly 500,000 people in Florida have psoriasis and another 146,000 have psoriatic arthritis. For these Floridians and everyone else across the U.S. struggling with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, we must find a cure.
The priority of the National Psoriasis Foundation South Florida Division is to give people the information and services they need to take control of their psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis, while increasing research to find a cure. If you or someone you love is affected by psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, join us to stop these devastating diseases.
Honorary Medical Chair announced for 2015
The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) South Florida Division is pleased to announce that Stefan C. Weiss, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist, will serve as the honorary medical chair for 2015. Weiss directs the Weiss Skin Institute, a clinical research center and private dermatology practice.
Considered a key opinion leader in the field of psoriasis treatment, he actively consults for the pharmaceutical industry in areas of clinical development and commercial strategy, and serves as a member of the scientific advisory board of a biotechnology firm looking at treatments for onychomycosis. He is an adjunct clinical instructor in dermatology at Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and he serves on the National Psoriasis Foundation Medical Board. Previously, Weiss was senior medical director at Connetics Corporation, a biotechnology company in Palo Alto, California. Here, Weiss was the medical team leader responsible for the successful completion of the clinical programs required to generate three successful new drug applications.
We're looking for dedicated volunteers to help with events, serve on our local leadership committee, and advocate for a cure.
