FSR Treatment Guide

Our Scientific Advisory Board developed these guidelines to help physicians who might not be as familiar with sarcoidosis to better understand the current recommended treatment options for the numerous manifestations of this disease. This resource is useful for patients and physicians alike, helping them understand the first, second, and third line treatments for sarcoidosis, including the off-label therapies that are often used in treating the disease.

FSR Patient Education Conferences

Each year, FSR hosts Patient Education Conferences all across the US. At these conferences, patients and their loved ones have the opportunity to learn from nationally recognized physicians about sarcoidosis manifestations, treatment options, and the latest advancements in research. FSR also ensures that each patient leaves with the knowledge and tools they need to better communicate with their physicians, build a treatment plan that works for them, and get involved in research to help advance the field and one day find a cure for sarcoidosis.

FSR Educational Resources

The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research knows that patients and their loved ones often have to search desperately for answers after receiving a diagnosis of sarcoidosis. Like many other rare diseases, there can be a lack of accurate and up-to-date information available. FSR has always prioritized filling that gap. This page is a dynamic resource for patients, caretakers, and even physicians who are looking for information on the disease itself, as well as treatment options, health insurance info, recordings of our patient conferences and webinars, bilingual resources, and more.
