This year we will be offering a unique two-day experience on a fun, interactive new platform.

FSR’s Virtual Summit is a two-day online opportunity for learning, fellowship, and wellness. These events allow sarc warriors from all over to come together from the comfort and safety of their own homes to learn about sarcoidosis-related topics, as well as wellness and support opportunities.

 

We are excited to share enhancements to this year’s program based on feedback from last year’s conferences:

 

Time in the platform. This year, we will be opening the virtual “doors” four-days before the start of the Summit

Personalized sessions. On this platform, you can choose your sessions during registration, and have your own personalized agenda guiding you inside the system!

Tracks for those new to sarcoidosis (101), and tracks for those who’ve been managing the disease for years (Chronic).

  • We will also be offering more diagnosis-specific content in each track.
  • We are particularly excited about our all-new Plenary Sessions:

 

  • Answering Your Medical Questions: 50 Min Q&A with Sarcoidosis Generalists
  • FSR Perspective & Resources: Learn about what FSR has in the works for 2021-22, as well as how to find a knowledgeable provider, and utilize the FSR-WASOG Centers of Excellence
  • Research Update: Learn about how FSR is supporting and funding research for better treatment and potentially a cure, plus a panel of members from FSR’s Clinical Studies Network discuss the success in Sarcoidosis Research
  • Providers as Patients Panel: This panel of FSR Patient Advocates and Navigators will share their perspectives on being both someone living with sarcoidosis, and a healthcare provider as they tackle big issues like care-coordination, communicating with providers, and more!
  • FSR Speakers Bureau Showcase: The members of our first-ever Speakers Bureau will share their lived experiences as people living with sarcoidosis, or care-partners.
