We recognize that there remain many regions throughout the country in which it is difficult to access a knowledgeable provider and quality information about sarcoidosis, treatment options, and current research. Patients know better than anyone the devastating effects of sarcoidosis, but we all need the guidance of good doctors to ensure we can overcome. By attending an FSR Patient Conference, patients and loved ones gain access to valuable resources and networking opportunities which help us work together to care for ourselves, as well as speed up research.
Registration is now available for all scheduled conferences in 2017, with links to register below. Information on exact locations, speakers, agenda, etc. will be updated regularly. If you have immediate questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 312-341-0500.
One recent attendee, after joining us for the South Carolina Patient Conference, shared “that the trip from Milwaukee to Charleston was definitely worth it to attend the conference! I traveled with my family and my folks and I appreciated the hospitality and education we received. It was a great opportunity to hear from experts, talk to others who share the challenges that sarcoidosis presents, and learn about treatment options that I had not previously heard of. Thank you to all of those who are part of the FSR for putting on the conference and for the medical professionals who shared their expertise with the attendees.”
Another patient spoke with physicians afterwards, having finally put all the pieces together to fully understand the symptoms she’s been experiencing. Empowered with her newfound knowledge and the resources shared at the conference, she intends to work alongside her physician back home to confirm her suspicions and consider the options she may have for treatment.
