The second leg of the Psoriasis Campus Caravan of hope was conducted at Hope Christian High School, August 14, 2018. Despite the heavy rains the Psorphil youth board (Yzha Villegas, Joonee Dela Cruz and Melvin Carson with Paul Mendoza, Jingget Villegas, and Doms Delos Santos) with PsorCoach Cris Javier still push through with the seminar and the participants this time were grade 6 students and they were ecstatic during the whole seminar. The program started with a pre-survey lecture wherein students answered questions about psoriasis and followed with the lecture of Yzha Villegas on what psoriasis is, different types of psoriasis, comorbidities of psoriasis during the talk of Yzha the students raised a lot of questions since their curiosity ignited on how psoriasis was acquired and amongst others, upon showing the pictures of the types of psoriasis students were shocked about the condition and Joonee Dela Cruz showed them how it really looks like, one of the participants tried to asked if it was true or just a prosthetic. Afterward, Melvin Carson introduced Psorphil and its advocacies and different programs wherein students were really attentive about how Psorphil helps patients not only with psoriasis but other disability.

The Re-Launch of the psoriasis Philippines program PSORTALK was successfully held with a new name Psoriasis Campus caravan of Hope at Emilio Aguinaldo College Cavite Campus located at City of Dasmariñas, the center of Excellence for education in the Province of Cavite on May 04, 2018. The PSORPHIL YOUTH believes that spreading awareness, increasing knowledge, and creating a strong inclusive community can help young people affected by psoriasis adapt and fit in to this rapidly changing world as well as receive and experience acceptance and understanding from friends, schoolmates, teachers, and family and with these notion, Psorphil youth aims to conduct a  series of awareness campaigns by visiting schools of all levels throughout the nation to educate and spread awareness about psoriasis and psoriasis arthritis, how patient lives each day and how the society can help and/or worsen the situation, train the school teaching and nonteaching personnel with the ability to screen for psoriasis with the help of a licensed medical representative from the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) and Philippine Rheumatology Association (PRA) and lastly to identify and recognize school that supports bullying against psoriasis and as well as other Persons With Disability (PWD).

Conceived by patients for patients, WPD is a truly global event that sets out to give an international voice to the estimated 125 million people with psoriasis/ psoriatic arthritis around the world. Formed by a global consortium of patient associations from around the world, WPD aims to raise the profile of the condition which needs to be taken more seriously by national and international authorities. In the Philippines, themed as Funwalk@Baywalk, WPD is attended by leaders, members and resident trainees of the Philippine Dermatological Society, patients and their families and friends and parade along Roxas Boulevard to make known among other things that psoriasis is NOT contagious.
