Daryl Woolsey is the Community Development Manager for the Northeast Region for the National Psoriasis Foundation www.psoriasis.org.

Daryl's responsibilities include raising awareness about psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and the NPF in the Northeast, marketing of local programs including More than Skin Deep and the Walk to Cure Psoriasis in New York, as well as the recruitment of new volunteers who can help spread the word about the Foundation and support our fundraising efforts. A former resident of Scarsdale, 1990 graduate of Scarsdale High School and a current resident of Rye, Daryl has scalp psoriasis so her mission of helping to find a cure is quite personal.

Dana H. Freyer, Co-Founder and Chair, Board of Directors, "Global Partnership for Afghanistan" (GPFA).
In 2004 Ms. Freyer co-founded GPFA to help rural Afghans create farm businesses that alleviate poverty, build sustainable livelihoods, and renew an environment that had been devastated by years of war.

GPFA community-based programs have provided thousands of Afghan men and women with the supplies, tools and training they need to revitalize and rebuild the vast network of farmer-owned nursery, orchard, vineyard, and woodlot enterprises that have long formed the backbone of Afghanistan’s economy. Over the past decade, GPFA’s programs have transformed the landscape of rural Afghanistan and improved the lives of over 323,000 men, women, and children in 2,500 villages across 14 provinces. Ms. Freyer will shed light on how programs like GPFA’s are contributing to Afghanistan’s security and stability during this pivotal time in the country’s history.
