The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research Global Sarcoidosis Clinic Alliance (FSR-GSCA) is a member program consisting of clinics, hospitals, and individual providers committed to finding a cure and offering evidence-based, patient-centric care for those living with sarcoidosis.
To ensure that sarcoidosis patients in every community have access to information, education, clinical trials, and patient support services.
To identify, acknowledge and support clinicians through networking opportunities/forums that enable learning, sharing and advancements in finding a cure and in continuity of care.
To accelerate research through FSR’s global assets and funding. To structure research initiatives with a strategic approach driven by measurable data and insights.
To contribute to business outcomes through patient benchmarks and community health improvement services.
FSR is dedicated to advancing the needs of all patients impacted with sarcoidosis and with closing the gap around health care disparities that are affecting our community. As an expansion of our Ignore No More efforts, FSR is offering three capacity building grants to hospitals and clinics that serve a high percentage of underserved patients and who have expertise in advancing clinical trials and clinical trial success.
Building from the FSR recently published white paper on Sarcoidosis and Clinical Trial Diversity, applicants for this grant will be charged with creating actionable recommendations to ensure successful and diverse recruitment of clinical trials.
This capacity building grant will award 3 hospitals/clinics with a 1-year membership (valued at $5,000) in the FSR-GSCA. Click the button below to view the full list of member benefits.
