Psoriasis: Diane Talbert shares her patient story

Patient advocate Diane Talbert knows what it means to live with psoriasis.

“The first 40 years of my life, I was 70 percent covered in psoriasis – 70 percent,” she shares.

Diane found a new dermatologist, who recommended a new treatment. Her insurance company had other ideas.

“They denied it! How can they deny a drug that is good for me. They put me on a cheaper, less effective drug, which made me sick, tired and sleepy, where I couldn’t get out of bed.”

Find out why Diane works with Creaky Joints and the Global Healthy Living Foundation to fight for every psoriasis patient’s right to access to the right treatment.
