FSR-GSCA Community Groups: Empowerment through education, support, and community
The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research is pleased to offer peer-led Community Groups as part of the Global Sarcoidosis Clinic Alliance (FSR-GSCA) initiative. Community Groups provide local opportunities for people living with sarcoidosis and their loved ones to engage in education, support, and networking. These groups are facilitated by FSR Volunteer Community Group Leaders, who are themselves patients with sarcoidosis, or caring for someone with sarcoidosis and have been trained to empower their peers. FSR-GSCA Community Groups meet in-person at FSR-GSCA member clinics, or virtually.
Each month, Community Group Leaders work with our FSR-GSCA member clinic to host local experts in sarcoidosis, and other areas of interest to group members such as pain management, emotional support, and more. Click on your state below to find the closest FSR-GSCA member clinic and associated Community Group and register to attend.
If you do not currently see a group in your area, please check back as we will continue to launch groups throughout the year in many states. Alternatively, FSR provides a National Virtual Support Group three times a month - learn more here.
