The church is located on Rt. 3 beside the Pence Springs Hotel. Happy New Year! An estimated seven-and-a-half mil- lion Americans, including, one million children, suffer from the often misun- derstood skin condition psoriasis. En- vironmental changes, particularly colder air, have a direct impact induc- ing flair ups for psoriasis sufferers. Severe cases of psoriasis can be devas- tatingly painful, but now comes evi- dence that the pain of psoriasi s is more than skin deep. A new study shows that more than two-thirds of psoriasis sufferers -- 68.1% -- consider the emotional ef- fects of their condition "more painful" than the physical effects. The survey polled 398 psoriasis sufferers and has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%. "This survey illustrates just how im- portant a holistic approach is when treating people for psoriasis," said Dr. Harold Farber, board certified derma- tologist. "The general public certainly does not understand psoriasis and can unwittingly make life more difficult • for psoriasis patients." Psoriasis is an unsightly condiuon that frequently appears as inflamed swollen skin lesions covered with sil- very white scales. It can appear any- where on the body. It is usually very i[chy and frequently painful. Now, there is help for patients trying to come to terms with the emotional anguish of psoriasis, Exorex Skin Care, makers of the OTC psoriasis medication Exorex, has created the Exorex Emotional Indicator, a self- assessment tool that gives psoriasis sufferers a baseline measurement of bow they're dealing with the condi- tion. Here's how it works: the psoriasis sufferer answers a series of 16 ques- Harold F. Farber, M.D. Board Certified Dermatologist tions. The answers are automatically scored and the sufferer receives a de- tailed evaluation of how he or she is dealing with psoriasis on an emotional level. The person also receives a recommended course of action to achieve a better grasp on the emotional side of psoriasis, including a recom- mended counselor if necessary. The Exorex Emotional Indicator is available at or on the toll-free U.S. Psoriasis Hotline at 1-888-702-2111. "Taking the Emotional Indicator is a smart way for psoriasis sufferers to confront this very serious side of their condition," said Dr. Farber. "Psoriasis can cause the patient embarrassment, frustration, tear and depression. There's no reason that a psoriasis pa- tient should have to lace that alone." SCHOOL MENU Byrd's-Eye Vww By U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd +'i :':,: Unlocking the Secrets bflzhetmer's Disease West Virginia is blessed with " a number of fine colleges and uni- versities. These institutions of • higher learning are helping to pre- pare our students to lead the way in the new century. At the same time, researchers at these schools are seeking new ways to utilize en- ergy sources, create new construc- tion materials, and improve the quality of life for men and women throughout the world. " West Virginia University (WVU), is taking steps to address an illness that is both physically and emotionally taxing -- Alzheim- er's Disease. Earlier this year, " WVU and Johns Hopkins Univer- sity in Baltimore, Maryland, an- nounced plans to create the Blanchette Rockefeller Neuro- sciences Institute. The Institute is named for U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller's mother, who suffered om Alzheimer's until her death in 1992. When complete, it will be one of the world's major centers for research into Alzheimer's and other neurological illnesses. In support of this endeavor, I recently added $20 million to an appropriations bill to design and build this center in Morgantown. As planned, the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute will be the largest scientific re- search venture in the history of " West Virginia and the "only major research institute in the world to focus on human memory. Alzheimer's is an agonizing disease both for the patient and for the patient's family. Slowly, almost imperceptibly at first, a person's mental capabilities erode. The memories of a lifetime ate slowly stolen away by the illness. It is not uncommon in the late stages of the disease for the patient to fail to rec- ognize even family members and close friends. It is my hope that, by utilizing the resources at the new Blanchette Rockefeller Neuro- sciences Institute, scientists and re- searchers will one day be able to find a way not only to control the disease but also to prevent it. I am proud to have been able to provide the Institute with its design and con- struction funding. WVU is developing into one of the nation's premier medical re- search institutions. The work at the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center includes, among other things, the development of new ap- proaches to treat breast cancer, to avert strokes, and to make special- ized treatment available through advanced technology to people liv- ing miles away from the nearest hospital. These efforts and invest- ments are very worthwhile, and I hope that they will lead to the day when doctors arc finally able to pre- vent debilitating diseases.
