  • Overview

    According to a recent study, patients with skin of color waited three times longer to be formally diagnosed with psoriasis and were almost four times more likely to be biopsied compared to non-Hispanic patients. And as a result, these patients were more likely to present with severe disease, greatly impacting their overall quality of life. To learn more about this study’s findings and how we can address racial disparities in psoriasis care, Dr. Charles Turck speaks with lead author Dr. Taylor Dickerson. Dr. Dickerson is a board-certified dermatologist and micrographic dermatologic surgeon at U.S. Dermatology Partners in Texas.
