PPACMAN (Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Clinics Multicenter Advancement Network) is made up of dermatologists and rheumatologists who play a key role in the management of psoriatic disease and are interested in combined clinics, with the mission “to nucleate psoriatic disease combined clinics and centers to advance a multilevel approach to psoriatic patients, increase disease awareness, and accelerate management,” according to Joseph Merola, MD, codirector of the center for skin and related musculoskeletal diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston.
