Dr. Ben has been my derm for years. His father Dr. Norman Lockshin was my derm before that. Very cool. Thanks for the share Frances!

Thanks for keeping us in the loop Frances... We tend to overlook what a great resource the Arthritis association is. Funny thing one of the Top guys on the left coast is also a Dr. Feng (Stanford Feng) who has done a lot of work with sonogram's for office use. He also as I understand it as PsA himself. Wonder if they are related to each other????

Actually, this is sponsored by the Psoriasis Foundation (not the Arthritis Foundation)

I recently found the National Psoriasis Foundation website and I have been reading everything on there. They also had a doctor do a webcast for us to watch on how to understand Psoriatic Arthritis. It was very informative! You can actually go there and watch any of the previously recorded webcasts too. You just have to make an account on there:

Great ! I'm glad you found it useful!
