This is a special bonus episode of the FSR Sarc Fighter podcast. You will be listening to a town hall recorded on February 18, 2023, where the guests discuss how to get more people involved in clinical trials for medications pointed at treating sarcoidosis patients.
Guests include Mary McGowan CEO of the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, Dr. Divya Patel Director of Sarcoidosis and ILD programs at the University of Florida, Bill Gerhart, CEO of Kinevant Sciences inc., And Garrie Farrow FSR Patient Advocate and Women of Color committee member. FSR Sarc Fighter podcast host John Carlin served as moderator.
During the hour-long presentation, the need for clinical trials in order to advance the fight against sarcoidosis is clearly laid out -- as is the difficulty in recruiting patients for the program and the reasons many patients decline to participate.
All of this with the goal of making it easier for patients to say yes and for medical science to help make it easier for patients to participate.
