Chicago Bears Jonathan Scott has teamed up with the National Psoriasis Foundation, and LEO QualityCare to launch a program for teens with psoriasis to help them take control of their condition. This new Youth Ambassador Program for teens is set to help roughly 7,000 kids under the age of 18 in the United States to become ambassadors for the condition in their own neighborhoods to set up a great support system for others who live with psoriasis. The kids who apply to the program have until August 19 to do so, and if they successfully become a Youth Ambassador they will be given a $500 stipend to support their work in their areas. In addition to that, one lucky ambassador will be awarded a $2,500 scholarship in early 2016 and also be invited to go to special NPF events.
The Texas native got his football career started when he played for the University of Texas Longhorns from 2002 through 2005 before he was selected in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. In addition to the Lions, the 2005 Big 12 Champion also played with the Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, and Atlanta Falcons through his nine year career in the NFL. In 2009, Scott was diagnosed with plaque psoriasis just shortly after the death of his father, so he knows exactly what these youngsters are going through.
Scott has teamed up with LEO QualityCare and the National Psoriasis Foundation this year to help teens living with the same condition be ambassadors in their area for psoriasis so that they can help others find ways to live with the skin condition in a positive, and progressive way.
