National Psoriasis Foundation wins award for educational articles
Patient magazine receives honor from American Academy of Dermatology
Psoriasis Advance magazine, the patient publication of the National Psoriasis Foundation, has received the American Academy of Dermatology's 2010 Gold Triangle Award for a feature series titled "Got Psoriasis?" which appeared in four issues in 2009 and 2010.
The articles examined the links between psoriasis and other serious diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. The articles, written by Heather Johnson Durocher and Cliff Collins, emphasized the importance of taking care of overall health in conjunction with psoriasis.
The Psoriasis Foundation is one of 37 winners, chosen from 107 total entries, being recognized by the American Academy of Dermatology for excellence in furthering the understanding of dermatology and encouraging healthy behavior in the care of skin, hair and nails.
"The Psoriasis Advance staff is gratified by the Academy's recognition of our efforts to educate readers about psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis," said editor Mary Bellotti.
Psoriasis Advance is published four times a year by the National Psoriasis Foundation to help members live well with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The magazine delivers up-to-date information about treatments and research, articles that empower and inspire, and tips for becoming an effective advocate for the psoriasis community.
