The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) has been requested by Axxiom Healthcare Alliance to assist with assembling focus groups of pulmonary sarcoidosis patients alongside the FSR Chicago Patient Conference.

The research would consist of a 90 minute focus group aimed at understanding a day in the life of a sarcoidosis patient. Additionally, the focus group aims to determine how to best support patients living with sarcoidosis.

If you qualify to participate, you will be compensated $125-150 for your time.

To qualify for the study:

  1. You must have been diagnosed with sarcoidosis for at least three years.
  2. Have tried at least two treatments for your sarcoidosis previously OR been on high dose (>20 mg daily) Prednisone at any time during treatment.
  3. Are not completely satisfied with your current treatment.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the form below. An FSR staff member will contact you to share additional information, as well as to ensure you qualify for the study. If you have immediate questions or concerns, please contact Lesley Baxter at or 312-341-0501.

    Please check all that apply. Please note that the FSR Chicago Patient Conference will take place on Saturday 4/14, 10 am - 3 pm and will not prevent you from participating in the focus groups, if you wish.
    By completing this form, I understand that an FSR staff member will contact me via phone and/or email to determine if I qualify for the focus group. I understand that my participation is voluntary and I may choose not to participate in the focus group at anytime. Furthermore, I understand that if I qualify that my name, email, and phone number will be shared with Axxiom Healthcare Alliance for the sole purpose of coordinating my participation in the focus groups taking place in Chicago, IL.
