Welcome to the Canadian Psoriasis Network

I am proud and honoured to assume the role of President of the Canadian Psoriasis Network. I am a passionate advocate for the inclusion of people living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis in our community. Over one million Canadians suffer from the disease and it is my goal to work with our Board to continue to build a strong Network to raise awareness and increase the understanding of our disease. The ultimate goal is to reduce the suffering and help people live their lives to the fullest.

Today, we have treatment options unavailable to us previously. There are new treatment options becoming available frequently as research progresses however, it is important for us to continue to collaborate with stakeholders in the ongoing quest for a cure. I hope you will join me in this mission. It will happen with the strategic focus of dedicated Canadians who are impacted by the disease. If you have any suggestions or questions, please contact me at president@cpn-rcp.com.

Dear Members, Directors, Sponsors and Friends:
In January 2012, I had no idea what I was venturing into when founding the Canadian Psoriasis Network. What I did know, was 24 years of struggling with psoriasis and just how life-changing the right treatment can be. Read Andrew’s letter
