John Warne was first diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 23 and with psoriatic arthritis at the age of 28. Working in IT, he has tirelessly campaigned for better education in the community with regard to the disease.
John regularly attends the All Party Parliamentary Group on Skin and has worked closely with a number of charities and pharmaceutical companies discussing what needs to change in the UK and Ireland to empower people living with psoriasis to achieve the best outcomes in the management of their condition.
The prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of obesity, hypertension, or cancer. Despite skin being the largest organ of the human body, dermatological research remains one of the most under funded areas of medicine. In a world where society has an increasing preoccupation with image and it’s importance to every aspect of a person’s life, sufferers of skin diseases are feeling and being more marginalised and isolated than ever.
