Rosacea on Television: Impact on Work Life
As part of the mission of the National Rosacea Society (NRS) to increase awareness, rosacea has been featured on television countless times over the years on local and national news programs as well as entertainment shows. We thought it would be fun and informative to share some of these historical video clips from our archives.
In April 2001, Fox 26 in Houston broadcast a news item about research into how rosacea can affect people's work lives. The 2000 NRS survey showed that more than half of those with moderate symptoms felt their skin condition had negatively impacted their work. One patient interviewed said, "I want to project a professional image, and sometimes that's hard to do when you're sitting there and you have a red face, and everyone's looking at you wondering what's wrong."
Fortunately, in the same survey, more than 70 percent of the respondents said that effective treatment had improved their work lives.
