FSR strongly believes that the causes of sarcoidosis, and ultimately a cure, will be uncovered through rigorous and extensive scientific research fueled in part by patient engagement. The Patient Ambassador Program puts that belief into action. FSR Patient Ambassadors are selected across the country to work closely with FSR staff to empower patients, facilitate grassroots outreach, advocate on the local and national level, support FSR programs, and facilitate fundraising for sarcoidosis research. Patient Ambassadors will also help gather and analyze feedback from FSR constituents to make specific recommendations to strengthen the effectiveness of FSR programs.

Ambassadors are trained volunteers who educate, advocate, and fundraise on behalf of FSR. While they receive ongoing training from FSR staff and can speak from personal experience, we also encourage you to search our website for information and contact FSR staff at info@stopsarcoidosis.org if you have questions.
