Last year I very much looked forward to attending the National Psoriasis Foundation's Capitol Hill Day in the nation's capital. Alas, due to inclement weather and subsequent flight cancellations, I didn't make it. This year I'm hoping the storms hold off long enough for my flight to land at Ronald Reagan National Airport on Sunday evening. If they do I'll not only check off another item off of my psoriasis bucket list, but also join in a cause I’ve become increasingly passionate about.
The winter storm #Stella unfortunately canceled my flight from Phoenix to Washington DC’s Reagan airport. I found out when I woke up for my first flight out of Sacramento. But I will still join the National Psoriasis Foundation's Capitol Hill visits remotely!
In my Everyday Health column The Itch to Beat Psoriasis, I address questions medical innovation, cure and prevention, and what a life free of psoriasis might look like.
My time at #AAD17 flew by, but I was able to take in a lot of the meeting including the Exhibit Hall, Plenary Session, and Scientific sessions and papers.
My first day at #AAD17 turned out to be an eventful one where I reflected on my place at a medical meeting as a patient advocate.
