78_mac-slider2_optFall is a time most clothing designers live for. They spend months creating new styles to be modeled on runways in New York, Milan, and Paris hoping to have the “must have” look of next Spring or Summer.

This Fall we present a new look from Sacramento tech-firm Uptown Studios (uptownstudios.net) for the IPPF that will be on computers, tablets, and phones around the world. After months of sketches, wire-frames, and coding, I am very excited to announce our new website: www.pemphigus.org.

The new site is easier to navigate and features resources and support at your fingertips. The “responsive” design keeps its look and feel no matter what screen size. We added accessibility features like variable text sizing and a high-contrast display. Our social media links, search box, and donation button are conveniently located at the top of each page. Our home page features a testimonial section. Read what others have to say about the IPPF. You can also submit your own story to be shared on our site!

A big part of our mission is support. In addition to the Email Discussion Group, RareConnect community, and social media sites, we added Desk.com support.

Our Patient Support team can now provide fast, awesome customer service on a modern, flexible platform over various channels. Patients and caregivers can find answers in the self-service portal using existing FAQs, email questions to our PHCs, or post to the general community. And when they are online, you can chat live with a PHC!

I am also excited about the Awareness Campaign portal currently being developed. It will contain resources and information for dental professionals and Awareness Ambassadors. Our goal is to keep P/P on the RADAR of dentists and provide them with tools and training needed to reduce P/P diagnosis time and increase your quality of life.
