Meet our 2023 Take ACTION Patient Speaker, Paul Schindel!

Paul Schindel was diagnosed with psoriasis when he was just 6 years old, and he has been a supporter of the National Psoriasis Foundation for over 35 years.

Paul has participated in numerous NPF fundraising efforts over the years including Pstamp Outs, Walks, and most recently NPF Cycle this past August where he raised over $2,600 to support the efforts of the NPF. Aside from fundraising, he has participated in various medical studies with the hopes of identifying advancements and breakthroughs to ultimately find a cure for psoriatic disease.
