Having a rare and often misunderstood disease is difficult. Additional funding for research, protections and legislative action can help make the lives of those living with sarcoidosis and their caregivers easier. As the first official days of summer begins, folks far and wide have an opportunity to reach out and speak with their government officials in their home states. July brings our government officials back, and that’s just the right opportunity to share your voice. Join FSR Patient Advocate and Speakers Bureau Member, Mary Morlino, as she shares her experience and knowledge of rare disease advocacy. Our SarcSocial discussion will include:

  • Why it’s important to share your voice with your government officials
  • Simple ways to share your voice: it’s not as hard as you think
  • How to prepare for a visit with your government officials
