5 Years Together: Still Strong, Pso Strong
The internet is fueling people’s ability to connect with each other, trade ideas, and solve problems. For the past 5 years, this has been just our goal here at PlaquePsoriasis.com - an online community of brave patient stories, connections, and specialized resources for those who live with this chronic condition.
And really, we're just the catalyst here. It is the courage and shared experiences of those living daily with psoriasis that elevate this community and seamlessly provide meaningful recognition, respect, and support to those who need it.
What we've been able to accomplish over the past 5 years
We've done a little research of our own and would like to share what the PlaquePsoriasis.com community has been interested in these past 5 years. Let's take a look.
Taking action througout the years
Since the beginning, our priority has been to raise psoriasis awareness and provide a supportive community. Recognizing our first awareness month in 2016, we were just getting started! We asked community members to simply change their social media avatars and participate in our forums! My, how much we've grown since then!
Fast forward five years later, we're recognizing Psoriasis Action Month with even more initiatives and opportunities for advocacy. We're encouraging those who live with psoriasis or have loved ones who live with psoriasis to share articles, join our advocacy discussions, learn about specific symptoms and share their own stories. We've also put together a summer skin giveaway to engage and thank our community members.
Here are 5 ways to get involved
We've seen it first hand, even the smallest amount of advocacy could make a difference. Whether you're completely new to Plaquepsoriasis.com, a frequent visitor, or coming back from a hiatus, we've grown so much throughout the past 5 years and have made updates and changes to better serve this growing community that is going through so much.
We encourage you to get to know our advocates and create a profile. If you're looking for ways to get started, go ahead and let the 5 items below help you get the ball rolling.

We would not have gotten this far or made this large of an impact without you. That's right you. You've signed up for our newsletters, you've shared your story, created profiles, and participated in our forums. In addition to looking for your own support or resources, you've provided it.
Psoriasis is not an easy condition to manage or live with, we certainly know that. By asking questions, providing answers, sharing experiences, you have allowed others living with psoriasis to feel less alone. You have made our community exactly what it is - for that, we're grateful.
