The sarcoidosis journey is an uncertain one and, at times, can feel lonely and isolating. However, it is possible to find a community of people who relate and understand what you’re going through. Join us for this year's FSR Global Sarcoidosis Summit (For Patients, Loved Ones, and Supporters) and begin building or adding to your community.

This event will provide the opportunity to learn and have your questions directly answered by world renowned experts. You will learn how to build stronger relationships with your providers and care teams as you grow your medical support community.

Whether you are living with sarcoidosis or supporting someone who is, this summit is for you. You will also have opportunities to meet, share stories, and learn from others who are on a similar journey through our extensive virtual community discussion forums, networking events, and chat tools. You will make lasting relationships with other sarcoidosis warriors and loved ones, such as yourself, and create a village of friends who truly understand what you are going through and who can provide advice and support for you throughout your journey.

"I have never gotten so much valuable information about this disease."

- 2022 Summit Attendee

We aim to support you along your journey by providing you an opportunity to “Find your community. Find your Life.”

This year’s program includes enhanced  education and networking opportunities including:

Dynamic platform,  personalized sessions, and AI generated recommendations

If you have joined us for past virtual summits, you will be pleased to know that we will continue to use the same user-friendly platform designed to promote interaction, engagement, and networking.

If this is your first time joining the virtual summit, rest assured that the platform will make it easy for you to create connections, find relevant sessions, and build your community.

Duration in the platform

We want everyone to feel comfortable and be ready to make the most of this event, so 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.


Returning 101 Track Topics

Whether you’re new to sarcoidosis or an experienced sarcoidosis warrior or loved one, we’re bringing back our 101 Track topics which are meant for those new to sarcoidosis while providing different topic and discussion opportunities for those who do not wish to participate in the 101 Track topics. Whether this is your first time learning about sarcoidosis or you have attended educational events before, you will find important information and insights in these sarcoidosis expert-led sessions.

Innovative sessions for patients, loved ones, and supporters

Invite your friends and family. Having a community of people with different perspectives allows all of us to learn from each other and lean on each other during the sarcoidosis journey.  This event is for anyone who is impacted by sarcoidosis, whether you are living with the disease or love and support someone who is.  All are welcome. Together we can improve the lives for all impacted by sarcoidosis.
