Educating Patients on Psoriasis: How to Train Your Patient to Be a Pro and How This Can Make All the Difference
George Han, MD PhD +1

Psoriasis is a chronic relapsing-remitting inflammatory skin condition. Treatment goals focus on decreasing ongoing inflammation, and thus improving quality of life while highlighting the National Psoriasis Foundation’s Treat to Target. Successful psoriasis education surrounds empowering patients and caregivers to become proactive, rather than reactive with their psoriasis care.

She graduated summa cum laude from Oregon State University in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in microbiology. After many years of struggling with acne, she has personally experienced the transformative power of dermatology, and believes that healthy skin can change an individual from the outside in. As a future dermatologist, she hopes to approach the psychosocial manifestations of a patient’s skin condition with as much care and compassion as the physical manifestations.
