MSRP Student Alyssa Ashbaugh Featured in Rheumatology News
Alyssa Ashbaugh, a third-year UCI medical student part of the ICTS Medical Student Research Program, was featured in Rheumatology News for her work researching psoriasis in the Latino community. Alyssa found evidence that Latino patients participating in a clinical trial for psoriasis treatment experience differing disease patterns and decreased quality of life as compared to White patients. Body surface coverage of psoriasis also differs between the two groups, with Latino patients displaying greater distribution in the upper limbs. Great work Alyssa, well done!
