(MUSIC)
GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY AND WELCOME TO THE BALANCING ACT.
WE’RE SO GLAD YOU JOINED US THIS MORNING. I’M JULIE MORAN.
GOOD MORNING, I’M OLGA VILLAVERDE.
WELL, IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME FOR MANY BUT THAT TAKES ON A
WHOLE DIFFERENT CONNOTATION FOR THOSE CONSIDERING CONTINUING
EDUCATION. AND IF YOU’VE THOUGHT ABOUT GOING BACK TO SCHOOL OR
JUST COMPLETING YOUR UNIVERSITY EDUCATION, WE’VE GOT EASY
OPTIONS THAT WILL HELP YOU HIT THE BOOKS AND YOU DON’T NEED TO
GO TO CAMPUS. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?
I LIKE THAT. PLUS, WE HAVE A LEADING
DERMATOLOGIST WITH US TODAY TO DISCUSS A SKIN CONDITION KNOWN
AS PSORIASIS. YOU’VE HEARD OF THAT. WHICH
AFFECTS NEARLY 5 MILLION AMERICAN MEN AND WOMEN.
AND THE BALANCING, ACT LOTS OF GOOD INFO TODAY, STARTS RIGHT
NOW.(MUSIC) ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CHANGE?
FEELING LIKE YOU MAY BE IN A RUT?
PERHAPS IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO UP YOUR GAME AND RETURN TO SCHOOL.
AND IF YOU THINK IT’S TOO LATE FOR YOU TO HIT TO BOOKS, THINK
AGAIN. OUR GUEST IS VERY FAMILIAR WITH
HIGHER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE FLEXIBLE. MEET DOCTOR
KELLI CLEVELAND, A PROFESSOR AT TROY UNIVERSITY.
GOOD MORNING. HI. GOOD MORNING.
THANK YOU SO MUCH. I’M THRILLED YOU ARE HERE.
BECAUSE YOU KNOW THERE ARE MANY DAYS THAT I THINK TO MYSELF, YOU
KNOW, THE COLLEGE DAYS WERE SO LONG AGO. DO I STILL HAVE IT IN
ME? AND I REALLY REALLY REALLY DO WANT TO GET MY MASTERS.
YOU CAN DO IT. REALLY?
ANYBODY CAN DO IT. YOU CAN DEFINITELY DO IT.
AS LONG AS YOU HAVE GOOD ENCOURAGING SUPPORT AND YOU
CHOOSE THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT. COLLEGE IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
THAN IT WAS 20 YEARS AGO. 25 YEARS AGO. EVEN 15 YEARS AGO.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO INTO THE TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM SETTING
ANYMORE. THERE’S SO MANY DIFFERENT FLEXIBLE OPTIONS THAT
WILL FIT YOUR SCHEDULE. AND YOU ARE LIVING PROOF TOO.
I AM LIVING PROOF. I DID IT. I WENT BACK FOR MY MASTERS AND
MY DOCTORAL DEGREE WITH A FAMILY.
WITH CHILDREN AND A FULL TIME JOB.
OH MY GOSH! AND A FULL TIME JOB?
AND A FULL TIME JOB. AND WHEN..
ANYBODY CAN DO IT. YOU CAN DO IT.
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING THAT SET YOUR MIND TO.
AND LET’S TALK ABOUT REALLY WHAT IT ADDS ON, NOT JUST, FOR ME, IT
WOULD BE JUST WHAT A SATISFACTION TO GET MY MASTERS.
RIGHT. BUT I ACTUALLY THINK YOU KNOW,
IT REALLY DOES END UP BRINGING YOU MORE DOLLARS.
IT DOES. IT ABSOLUTELY DOES.
STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT THOSE WITH A COLLEGE DEGREE EARN MORE
MONEY THAN THOSE WITHOUT. AND NOT ONLY THAT, IT JUST CHANGES
YOUR LIFE. AND IT CAN CHANGE YOUR FAMILY’S LIFE AS WELL.
AND LET’S TALK ABOUT THE FLEXIBILITY. HOW WOULD IT WORK
FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME OR A MOM OUT THERE THAT SAYS OK, I’M LIKE
OLGA. I’VE GOT ALL OF THESE THINGS GOING ON. HOW DOES IT
WORK? RIGHT. THIS IS NO LONGER YOUR
MOM AND DAD’S UNIVERSITY OR COLLEGE CAREER.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO 5 DAYS A WEEK AND SIT IN THREE HOURS OF
CLASSES ANYMORE. THAT’S WHAT I DID.
I DID TOO. ORIGINALLY, BUT NOW WITH PEOPLE
WORKING. MORE PEOPLE WANTING TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND BETTER
THEMSELVES. THERE’S SO MANY DIFFERENT OPTIONS. SO MANY
DIFFERENT SCHEDULES THAT CAN FIT EVERYBODY’S PERSONAL NEEDS.
CLASSES ARE NOW OFFERED ON THE WEEKENDS, AT NIGHT. AND THE BEST
THING IS ONLINE. ONLINE DELIVERY IS THE WAY TO
GO. ESPECIALLY FOR A WORKING MOTHER.
IT IS A CHANGE IN TERMS OF GOING TO THE ACTUALLY CAMPUS AS
OPPOSED TO ONLINE. BECAUSE YOU KNOW I’M NOT USED TO IT. BUT YOU
DO IT AND .. IT’S DEFINITELY DOABLE AND YOU
GET USED TO IT. I WAS MORE OF THE TRADITIONAL
STUDENT. I WANTED TO GO TO CLASS, SEE MY PROFESSOR AND BE
ABLE TO INTERACT. BUT AFTER A FEW MONTHS OF MY FIRST ONLINE
CLASS, I REALIZED YOU CAN NOT BEAT THIS. I WAS AT HOME ON MY
OWN TIME WITH A BABY, WITH A BABY!
I PUT MY BABY TO BED, I DID MY CLASSWORK. I COULD GET UP EARLY
IN THE MORNING, DO MY COURSEWORK. IT WAS JUST, IT’S
ACTUALLY PHENOMENAL. IT REALLY IS.
AND YOU GOT YOUR MASTERS IN HOW MUCH TIME?
THREE YEARS FOR MY MASTERS BECAUSE I WENT PART TIME FOR A
LITTLE WHILE. THAT’S WHAT I WOULD DO.
AND THEN FINISHED IT OUT FULL TIME.
MY DOCTORAL DEGREE THOUGH, TWO YEARS.
STRAIGHT THROUGH. YOU GO GIRL.
YOU’RE BASED IN ALABAMA, IF I’M CORRECT.
RIGHT. BUT YOU HAVE CAMPUSES ALL OVER
THE COUNTRY. WE DO. WE DO. WE HAVE FOUR
CAMPUSES IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA. BUT WE HAVE CAMPUSES
THROUGHOUT SEVEN OTHER STATES. AND OUR ONLINE DELIVERY FORMAT,
THE BEST. CALLED E TROY, IT IS AGAIN
PHENOMENAL. I MEAN IT’S THE BEST WORD I CAN
THINK OF TO DESCRIBE IT IS PHENOMENAL.
NOW YOU ALSO HAVE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS I
UNDERSTAND. YES.
WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE EVEN MY COUSINS IN MEXICO ARE
ALWAYS TELLING ME THEY WANT TO STUDY.
ABSOLUTELY. WE HAVE A HUGE INTERNATIONAL
FOCUS. WE HAVE AT LEAST 65 OTHER COUNTRIES THAT ARE REPRESENTED
AND TROY THROUGH ON CAMPUS BUT ALSO THROUGH GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS
WITH OTHER COUNTRIES SO WE HAVE A REAL TRUE INTERNATIONAL FOCUS.
AND I WAS READING THE BROCHURE EARLIER BEFORE WE STARTED
TALKING ABOUT THIS FABULOUS OPPORTUNITY. I JUST LOVE THEIR
MOTTO. AND I KNOW YOU KNOW IT BY HEART, I JUST HAVE TO READ IT.
EDUCATE THE MIND TO THINK. THE HEART TO FEEL. THE BODY TO ACT.
FABULOUS. IT IS.
IT REALLY IS. AND AS A NURSE I HONESTLY TAKE THAT PERSONALLY.
I’M ALSO A FACULTY MEMBER WITH TROY AND I THINK I CAN SPEAK FOR
EVERY OTHER FACULTY MEMBER THAT’S NOT JUST A MOTTO. THAT’S
HOW WE TRULY TEACH OUR STUDENTS. WE WANT THEM NOT ONLY TO GET A
DEGREE FROM TROY AND GO OUT AND EARN A PAYCHECK, WE WANT THEM TO
HAVE SOMETHING THAT THEY CAN BE PASSIONATE ABOUT AND TRULY MAKE
A DIFFERENCE. NOT ONLY IN THEIR LIVES BUT IN OTHER PEOPLE’S
LIVES AS WELL. AND I DO HAVE TO CLARIFY THAT I
CHANGED MY DRESS BEFORE WE STARTED THE SEGMENT BECAUSE I
REALIZED I HAD YOUR COLORS. YEAH PEFECT!
AND I REALLY WANTED TO MATCH. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
IT LOOKS GREAT. AND WE HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU,
ACTUALLY. OH!
A TSHIRT SO YOU CAN HAVE IT AND ACTUALLY SHOW YOUR TROJAN
WARRIOR SPIRIT. I’M TELLING YOU. YOU HAVE SO
CONVINCED ME. SO MUCH SO THAT SHE WAS ACTUALLY KIND ENOUGH TO
GIVE OUR CREW SHIRTS AS WELL. SO, I’VE CONVINCED EVERYBODY
HERE TO GIVE IT A WHIRL AND GO BACK TO SCHOOL WITH ME.
RIGHT. GREAT IDEA.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU TIME. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I’M EXCITED. AND FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW
YOU CAN BALANCE WORK AND FAMILY WHILE CONTINUING YOUR EDUCATION,
VISIT OUR WEBSITE THEBALANCINGACT.COM
THEBALANCINGACT.COM AND LIKE SHE SAID, IT CAN BE
DONE. YOU ARE A TESTAMENT TO THAT.
WELL, OUR NEXT GUEST IS A MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER AND AUTHOR
WHO ENCOURAGES HER READERS TO BE QUOTE: “THE ARTIST OF THEIR
LIVES. I LOVE THAT. KRISTIN
MACKEY’S MOST RECENT BOOK: YOU CAN.
YOU WILL. YOU DID…IS CHANGING
LIVES. WELCOME KRISTIN, GOOD TO SEE
YOU. THANK YOU, GLAD TO BE HERE.
LOVE THE TITLE OF THE BOOK AND IT’S BEEN DESCRIBED AS A
WITTY WAY OF TRANSFORMING ONE’S LIFE…A MUST READ…
TELL ME MORE… ABSOLUTELY.
ONE OF THE THINGS I WANTED TO DO WAS TO CREATE A BOOK THAT
WASN’T LIKE YOUR CLASSIC SELF HELP BOOK, AND I WANTED IT TO
HELP PEOPLE TO MOVE THROUGH CHANGE AND WHETHER THAT CHANGE
WAS, OH THEY WANTED TO REFRESH THEIR LIFE OR A CAREER CHANGE OR
MAYBE EVEN GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE, I WANTED THEM TO HAVE A
SORT OF SAFE PLACE TO MOVE THROUGH THAT PROCESS AND
ADDRESS SENSITIVE SERIOUS ISSUES BUT IN A REALLY PLAYFUL WAY.
I THINK THAT’S GREAT BECAUSE SOMETIMES SELF HELP CAN BE A
LITTLE PREACHY AND I KNOW SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON’T RELATE TO
THAT AS MUCH AS THEY DO TO A WAY THAT’S A LITTLE BIT MORE
UNDERSTANDABLE…AND RELATABLE ABSOLUTELY.
AND I KNOW YOU’VE SPOKEN TO WHAT ABOUT EIGHTEEN-THOUSAND
PEOPLE IN YOUR CAREER SHARE SOME OF THE TREASURED,
TRANSFORMATIONAL MESSAGES IN YOUR BOOK AND TALK A LITTLE
BIT MORE IF YOU WOULD ABOUT AS YOU PUT IT: “MANAGING YOUR
PARTICLES”! IT’S CALLED “MANAGING YOUR
PARTICLES” YES.
WHAT ARE PARTICLES? (LAUGHING).
ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY, WELL ONE OF THE THINGS THAT RESONATES
MOST WITH THE READERS IS THAT IF WE MAKE SMALL CHANGES, WE CAN
SEE LARGE TRANSFORMATION, IT’S LITTLE STEPS THAT WE TAKE AND SO
THATS REALLY WHAT’S BEHIND THE IDEA OF MANAGE YOUR PARTICLES,
BECAUSE WHEN YOU WANT TO MAKE A LOT OF CHANGE YOU HAVE TO GO
DEEP. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS, WHAT
ARE YOU’RE FEELINGS? WHAT ARE YOUR BELIEFS?
AND SO WHEN YOU’RE MANAGING YOUR PARTICLES, WHAT ARE YOUR
PARTICLES DOING? WHAT ARE SOMEONE ELSES PARTICLES
DOING? AND THAT GIVES YOU AN
OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE POSITIVE CHANGE IN AN EASIER WAY.
AND YOU HAVE TO START WITH BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF.
YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. BEING AUTHENTIC.
HMMMM. YOU ARE ALSO AN ILLUSTRATOR, CAN
YOU DESCRIBE HOW THIS KIND OF ADDS ANOTHER LAYER TO THE
PROCESS FOR YOU? SURE, OFTEN TIMES IN MY WORK
SHOPS I WOULD COME UP WITH AN IDEA AND I WOULD FIND MYSELF
RUNNING OVER TO THE FLIP CHART AND SKETCHING OUT A CARTOON AND
WHEN I DID THAT I REALIZED THAT THE CARTOONS REALLY HELP THE
PERSON UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT, HELPS THEM REALLY YOU, KNOW GO A
LITTLE DEEPER AND EXPLAIN SOMETIMES COMPLICATED TOPICS SO
I THOUGHT YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A NEAT THING TO ADD TO
THE BOOK. I THINK THAT’S GREAT.
YEAH. YOU KNOW, AS WE ENTER THIS NEW
YEAR, AND YOU KNOW YOU ALWAYS HEAR PEOPLE MAKING NEW YEARS
RESOLUTIONS AND THINGS LIKE THAT, HOW CAN A MAN OR WOMAN
FIND THEIR OWN BLUEPRINT FOR LIFE, REGARDLESS OF
CIRCUMSTANCES OR EVEN SELF-IMPOSED LIMITATIONS AND I
SAY SELF IMPOSED BECAUSE WE TEND TO LIMIT OUR SELVES A LOT.
ABSOLUTELY, I ALWAYS SHARE WITH MY GROUP THIS: IF YOU SET AN
INTENTION AND YOU’RE CLEAR ABOUT THAT INTENTION, YOU HAVE A PLAN
AND THEN YOU START SMALL FOR THAT MACRO TRANSFORMATION, YOU
WILL SEE A LOT OF CHANGE, BUT THEN OF COURSE YOU DON’T FORGET
TO MANAGE YOUR PARTICLES . ABSOLUTELY, MANAGE YOUR
PARTICLES, I’M NEVER GOING TO FORGET THAT EXPRESSION.
(LAUGHING). WHERE CAN WE FIND YOUR BOOK?
YOU CAN FIND IT ON MY WEBSITE AND ALSO ON AMAZON.COM
WELL, KRISTIN THANK YOU SO MUCH. OH IT WAS MY PLEASURE.
TERRIFIC INFORMATION AND CONTINUED SUCCESS TO YOU.
THANK YOU. AND IF YOU’D LIKE TO FIND OUT
MORE ABOUT KRISTIN MACKEY’S BOOK: YOU CAN.

IT’S THE SOCIAL THING TO DO (MUSIC)
PSORIASIS IS A LIFE LONG CHRONIC SKIN CONDITION THAT
AFFECTS NEARLY 7.5 MILLION AMERICANS.
80 PERCENT OF THESE PATIENTS HAVE CHRONIC
PLAQUE PSORIASIS. LIVING WITH AND MANAGING PLAQUE
PSORIASIS CAN BE A TREMENDOUS BURDEN ON ONE’S LIFE.
WITH US THIS MORNING TO DISCUSS THIS
DEBILITATING DISEASE AND WHAT CAN
BE DONE TOPICALLY TO HELP MANAGE PSORIASIS, IS DR. REBECCA SMITH,
A BOARD CERTIFIED DERMATOLOGIST IN
BOTH DERMATOLOGY AND PEDIATRIC DERMATOLOGY.
SHE IS ALSO BASED IN FORT MILL, SOUTH CAROLINA.
AND WAS VOTED BY CHARLOTTE MAGAZINE AS
ONE OF THE TOP DOCTOR’S IN THE CHARLOTTE METROPOLITAN AREA.
GOOD MORNING! GOOD MORNING.
THANKS FOR HAVING ME. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH. YOU MUST HAVE BEEN SO HONORED.
ABSOLUTELY. WELL, OBVIOUSLY YOU WORK VERY
VERY HARD TO EARN THAT.
YES, MA’AM. LET’S TALK ABOUT PSORIASIS.
MORE SPECIFICALLY PLAQUE PSORIASIS.
TELL ME ABOUT THIS CONDITION AND WHAT IT IS.
PSORIASIS IS A CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY SKIN
DISEASE THAT OFTEN AFFECTS, IT WILL SHOW UP ON THE ELBOWS,
THE KNEES. IT’S A PINK TO RED PLAQUES.
THEY’RE OFTEN PRETTY THICK. THEY HAVE SOME SILVERY SCALE.
IT CAN BE VERY VISIBLE. IT CAN CAUSE A LOT OF
FRUSTRATION AND A LOT OF EMBARRASSMENT TO
PATIENTS. IT CAN ACTUALLY BE ANYWHERE ON
THE BODY. IT CAN BE REALLY FLAKY ON THE
SCALP. IT CAN COVER THE LOWER BACK.
THE BUTTOCKS. IT CAN EVEN AFFECT THE NAILS.
SO, IF YOU HAVE A RASH OR SOME SORT
OF SKIN DISEASE THAT DOESN’T GO AWAY,
CONSULT YOUR DERMATOLOGIST TO MAKE SURE
THAT YOU GET THE RIGHT DIAGNOSIS SO YOU CAN GET THE RIGHT
TREATMENT. THE NATIONAL PSORIASIS
FOUNDATION HAS CATEGORIZED DIFFERENT TYPES
OF PSORIASIS. AND PLAQUE PSORIASIS IS THE MOST
COMMON TYPE. IS IT MORE IN MALES OR FEMALES,
BOTH? ACTUALLY IN BOTH.
REALLY? YES, MA’AM.
AND IT’S HEREDITARY. IT IS HEREDITARY.
IT IS NOT CONTAGIOUS. IT’S HEREDITARY.
AND ENVIRONMENTAL. SO, FOR PEOPLE WHO SUFFER
FROM PLAQUE PSORIASIS, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CONCERNS THEY
HAVE TO MANAGE THIS CONDITION? BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THERE IS NO
CURE. RIGHT.
THERE IS NO CURE. SO, WHAT WE WANT, IS WE
WANT SOME EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATION.
SO, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH
YOUR DERMATOLOGIST. YOU NEED A GAME PLAN.
YOU NEED A DISEASE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY.
YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET
THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR YOUR TYPE OF
DISEASE, DEPENDING ON THE EXTENT AND
SEVERITY OF YOUR DISEASE. YOU JUST MAY NEED A TOPICAL.
BUT IF YOU HAVE MODERATE TO SEVERE
DISEASE, YOU ACTUALLY MIGHT NEED A SYSTEMIC.
AN ORAL MEDICATION OR SOME LIGHT THERAPY, SOME UV LIGHT THERAPY
CALLED PHOTO THERAPY.
OR YOU MIGHT EVEN NEED A BIOLOGIC.
AN INJECTABLE PROTEIN TO HELP MANAGE YOUR DISEASE.
SO, OBVIOUSLY IT IS NOT THE SAME FOR EVERYBODY.
ABSOLUTELY NOT THE SAME FOR EVERYBODY.
EVERY CASE IS INDIVIDUAL. DOCTOR, WHAT ARE SOME AVAILABLE
TREATMENT OPTIONS TODAY?
WELL, TODAY WE ARE GOING FOCUS ON
TOPICAL THERAPIES. OKAY.
AND THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT TOPICAL
THERAPIES. FIRST AND FOREMOST, THE MOST
COMMON ONE IS A TOPICAL STEROID.
SO, TOPICAL STEROIDS WORK BY DECREASING
INFLAMMATION. BY HELPING WITH THE ITCH.
WITH THE THICKNESS OF THE PLAQUE.
IT WILL TAKE THE REDNESS AWAY. SO TOPICAL STEROIDS HELP WITH
INFLAMMATION AND MAKING THE SYMPTOMS BETTER.
THERE’S CREAMS, THERE’S OINTMENTS,
THERE’S GELS, THERE’S SPRAYS. MANY OF THE PATIENTS PREFER
THE SPRAY FORMULATIONS BECAUSE OFTEN PSORIASIS, IT’S A LARGE
BODY SURFACE AREA. AND TO COVER IT ALL.
YES! TO MAKE IT EASY TO MAKE IT QUICK,
TO MAKE IT CONVENIENT. THEY WANT SOMETHING THAT IS NOT
GOING TO MAKE THEIR CLOTHES MESSY.
SO, SPRAYS WILL OFTEN RUB IN AND ABSORB VERY EASILY.
IS THAT WHAT WE HAVE HERE TODAY? YES, MA’AM.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS. WHAT WE HAVE IS TOPICORT.
WHICH IS SUPER POTENT COST ONE TOPICAL STEROID.
IT’S FDA APPROVED FOR PLAQUE PSORIASIS
IN PATIENTS 18 AND OLDER. OKAY.
WHAT IT DOES, IS IT DECREASES THE INFLAMMATION OF
THE SKIN AND IN THE CLINICAL TRIALS.
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT POINTS WITH TOPICORT, IS THAT THERE WAS
NO STINGING AND BURNING. EVEN ON THE EXCORIATING PLAQUES.
WHICH MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE. ABSOLUTELY.
I KNOW YOU HAVE AN EXAMPLE OF A PATIENT,
I BELIEVE, HE IS 35 YEARS OLD. AND HE USED IT.
TELL ME WHAT WE ARE SEEING HERE. YES, MA’AM.
SO, THIS A BASELINE. THIS PATIENT HAS HAD PSORIASIS
FOR 10 YEARS. THIS IS THE BASELINE PH0TO.
THAT LOOKS PAINFUL. IT CAN BE VERY PAINFUL.
VERY ITCHY. SO, AFTER HE’S APPLIED IT TWICE
A DAY FOR TWO WEEKS, THAT’S THE MIDDLE
PHOTO AND THEN TWICE A DAY FOR FOUR WEEKS.
SO, YOU CAN SEE IT’S NOT CURED, BUT IT’S SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE! ONE OF MY PATIENTS WAS
ACTUALLY AT A SWIMMING POOL ONE TIME, AND HE WAS ASKED TO LEAVE
THE SWIMMING POOL BECAUSE PEOPLE
THERE THOUGHT HE HAD SOME CONTAGIOUS DISEASE.
YOU’RE KIDDING? AND WHAT ABOUT THE SAFETY ASPECT
WHEN IT COMES TO APPLYING THE SPRAY.
BECAUSE YOU KNOW, LISTEN, IF YOU TELL ME IT’S GOING TO
WORK, I SAY GREAT.
BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS CONCERNED SAFETY.
THE CONNOTATION OF STEROIDS IS SOMETIMES VERY
DAUNTING, BUT IF USED AS DIRECTED BY
A PHYSICIAN AND USED FOR NO LONGER THAN
YOUR PHYSICIAN DIRECTS THEN THEY CAN BE QUITE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE.
TOPICORT IS FDA APPROVED. AGE 18 AND OLDER FOR
CHRONIC PLAQUE PSORIASIS. AND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO,
IS AGAIN CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN. MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT
MEDICINE FOR YOUR TYPE OF DISEASE.
ARE THERE RESOURCES FOR PEOPLE OUT THERE
THAT MAY BE SUFFERING FROM PLAQUE PSORIASIS?
BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE ALWAYS WANT TO LEARN MORE.
FAMILIES EVEN, THAT ARE SUFFERING
THROUGH IT WITH THEIR LOVED ONES.
ABSOLUTELY. ONE OF MY FAVORITE RESOURCES IS
CALLED THE NATIONAL PSORIASIS
FOUNDATION. IT’S A NON PROFIT.
YOU CAN JOIN IT AS A PATIENT. YOU CAN JOIN IT AS A PROVIDER.
THEY PROVIDE LOTS OF INFORMATION SUCH AS PAMPHLETS AND BOOKLETS.
THERE’S LOTS OF INFORMATION ONLINE
ABOUT VARIOUS TREATMENT OPTIONS. AND ONE OF THE OTHER VERY
WONDERFUL RESOURCES FOR MEDICATIONS LIKE
TOPICORT, IS THAT THERE ARE CO-PAY
CARDS. SO, THE CO-PAY CARDS MAKE IT
FREE FOR THE PATIENT WHO ARE INSURED TO
RECEIVE THE MEDICATION.
OH THAT’S HUGE. AND AGAIN, HUGE IN TERMS OF
MAKING THAT DIFFERENCE. BECAUSE FROM THAT PHOTO YOU
SHOWED ME, AGAIN, NO CURE BUT WHAT A
DIFFERENCE FOR THAT GENTLEMAN.
YES, MA’AM. EXCELLENT.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, DOCTOR. THANK YOU!
AND CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN ON THE HONOR.
THANK YOU. MY PLEASURE.
AND OF COURSE IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE
