Meet our 2023 Take ACTION Honored Hero, Aditi

I am a person, mom, wife, daughter and physician… but not usually in that order. For that reason, life can be stressful. Stress is my major risk factor for psoriasis flares. I spend my energy modifying psoriasis risk factors by living a healthy lifestyle. I live with psoriasis, not in spite of psoriasis.

I am new to the National Psoriasis Foundation, but am already seeing the benefits of aligning with this valuable organization. I have experienced the education, research and leadership NPF offers and look forward to joining the community.
