Here at Chronically Content, I love to pass on information to you, if it might be helpful.  There are so many different chronic illnesses.  Psoriasis is a terrible autoimmune disease that affects too many of us.  This Webcast is free and open to the public.  When you register, you can add questions that you would like the doctor to address.

This webcast focuses on comorbidities.  I wrote here about Psoriasis and the Heart, because of the comorbid relationship.  The seriousness of this and other diseases goes without saying.  But, I want to learn more, including how to help myself.

The National Psoriasis Foundation sent me this information in their email newsletter.  Here it is for you:

Research continues to link individuals with psoriasis to a host of other physical and psychological diseases. From a physiological standpoint, the inflammation involved in psoriasis plays a large role in related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, Crohn’s and many others. Social stigma and the general public’s lack of knowledge about psoriasis leads to psychological issues such as depression and anxiety among those with the disease.

Getting to the Heart of Comorbidities is a FREE online event that will educate patients and caregivers on the related conditions associated with psoriasis.
