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.
I largely live in two worlds: one as a pastor/minister at a local church in a college town, and the other as a patient advocate/blogger primarily with psoriasis advocacy. The two worlds do not overlap much, but they do inform each other. Here's how.
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 next adventure begins as I travel to Orlando to join the #AAD17 conference as a psoriasis patient advocate.
