After living with severely debilitating psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for over 30 years, Nitika Chopra found that no matter how hard she tried, she always felt completely isolated and alone. For a long time, she assumed that it must have been because something was inherently broken or wrong with her. After getting the courage to open up about her health, she realized that every time she met someone who had a chronic illness, they felt the exact same way.
While Nitika’s career started over 10 years ago as the founder of a popular online magazine, the host of her own talk show on global television, and a brand ambassador for some of the most prestigious beauty brands on the market, in the midst of her success she felt a deep longing for something more. Something she could create that would truly have an impact on the lives of others. That passion sparked the idea to create Chronicon. After 10 years in content creation, Nitika launched Chronicon in the fall of 2019, an inclusive community-building event focused on those living with chronic illness. The New York City event sold out and had 2,000 live stream viewers. Join us as we share Nitika’s powerful journey and resources!
