The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is a non-profit organization with a mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected.
Founded in 1966 from a tiny classified ad in a Portland, Oregon, newspaper, NPF has evolved to become the leading patient advocacy group for the more than 8 million Americans living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
As emerging research continues to demonstrate the serious, systemic effects of these chronic autoimmune diseases, our highest priority is to find a cure.
The Spondylitis Association of America (SAA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1983 to address the needs of people living with spondylitis. Since that time, SAA has been at the forefront of the fight to promote medical research, educate both the medical community and general public, and advocate on behalf of the people we serve.
But what sets us apart from other organizations is more than our efficiency and work ethic; it’s the people who work with us to achieve our goals. From our small staff of dedicated professionals at our Van Nuys, California, headquarters and our all-volunteer Board of Directors to our internationally recognized Medical & Scientific Advisory Board, SAA is comprised of a lean group of dedicated experts whose aim is to change the landscape of spondylitis in the U.S. for the better.
