It is possible to find answers and hope. It is possible to find a community of people who understand what you’re going through. It is possible to find answers from world renowned experts. It is possible to live your best life with sarcoidosis.

Newly diagnosed and long-term sarcoidosis patients, caregivers, and family and friends of someone impacted by sarcoidosis are all invited to attend this year’s Summit. Unveiling Possibilities will bring connection, expertise, and shared experiences to help you and your loved ones throughout your sarcoidosis journey.

We are expanding the education and networking opportunities at this year's Global Virtual Patient Summit:

Dynamic platform and personalized sessions

Based on last year's success, the same user-friendly platform will be utilized. This platform is tailored to the user's individual interests and allows for networking opportunities. You can choose your sessions during registration, and have your own personalized agenda guiding you inside the system!

Duration in the platform

The virtual “doors” will open four-days before the start of the Summit. Early access allows you to check out sessions in advance, get familiar with the platform, network with other attendees, and visit exhibit booths to obtain vital information from FSR’s sponsors and partners.

Access to the platform stays open until September 30th, allowing attendees to review and re-watch any session. 

 

Tracks

Our 101 Track is meant for those new to sarcoidosis and our Chronic Track is meant for those who have been managing the disease for years. Regardless if you are new to sarcoidosis or not, our Overview Tracks are meant to provide comprehensive information for everyone. 

Innovative sessions

Invite your family and friends: We will have special sessions and networking opportunities specifically for supporters and caregivers. 

Living your best life with sarcoidosis: Based on last year's extremely popular Coffee Break, we're increasing the networking through sessions designed to stimulate discussions  on topics important to you!

The Schedule

Scholarships

Thanks to our amazing donors, we have a limited number of scholarships for patients and their loved ones. Scholarships are meant to reduce the burden of registration costs for those in our community who would not otherwise be able to attend. 

 

The Scholarship window is open during the Early Bird Registration period (April 25-July 8th) or until scholarships have all been awarded, whichever comes first.

Feedback from last year

In 18 years, this is the first time I have received such comprehensive information.

Thank you.

In over 20 years of having sarcoidosis, this is the most information I have received on my diagnosis.
