Fighting sarcoidosis as well as other rare diseases.

Bonus Episode | Sarcoidosis and COVID-19 Presented by the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research

May 31, 2021

With vaccines for COVID-19 now available, Sarcoidosis Warriors are rightfully concerned about how the vaccines might impact them.  Will they interact negatively with my condition or my medications?  Can the vaccine trigger a flare?  Will the vaccine work if I'm immune suppressed?  

Sarc Fighter Podcast Host John Carlin interviews two leading doctors to get answers to your questions.  Dr. Peter Sporn, the Director of the Northwestern University Sarcoidosis Center of Excellence and Dr. Wonder Drake of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine answer all of your questions and concerns.

I recently moderated a conversation for FSR about dealing with prednisone.  Almost all of us have dealt with it at one point or another.  One doctor on the panel even called it, "poison."
