Psoriasis Shout Out® – April 2014

The first Manchester Psoriasis Shout Out (a patient and public engagement event) was held in April 2014. The Shout Out team’s aim was to get people talking about psoriasis (what it is and what it isn’t) and to bring psoriasis patients together with professionals working in the field of psoriasis management and research. Through the enthusiasm of staff and patients, what began as a small event soon snowballed into a week-long festival of activities – including high-profile project launches, dedicated patients events and even a fashion show! The week started off with a ‘Happy’ flashdance in St Ann’s Square and Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester and ended with a fashion show at the INTU Trafford Centre. Throughout the week we not only helped to raise awareness of psoriasis we also gained patient ambassadors who will help to inform future activities and events.
