Education, support and awareness
are primary missions of the Sarcoidosis Network Foundation. Because
this disease attracts less attention than others, it is often difficult
to obtain accurate information about it, or learn of other patients.
You will find social interaction and discussion with other patients
and their supporters at our regular meetings, our annual Sarcoidosis
Awareness And Education Conference, and the Foundation's Facebook
page. (See the link to the right).
In Memory of
Dr. Om P. Sharma, who passed away August, 20, 2012.

As part of its education mission, the Foundation tries to make
accurate information available, including reproducing, with permission,
questions and answers provided by world authority on the subject,
the late Dr. Om P. Sharma.
In an effort to make more useful information available, we try
to obtain permission to publish additional information here. Some
of the information found here, and elsewhere, includes personal
accounts of individual patients who have chosen to share their experience
with others. While such accounts are reassuring, help one to become
more familar with the disease, and to learn what to expect with
sarcoidosis, no one reading these should construe statements about
another's case as a specific diagnosis or recommendation for their
own medical treatment.
Please remember that the Foundation does not make medical diagnoses,
nor offer specific medical advice. For diagnosis, and treatment,
please seek a qualified medical professional.
