Fighting sarcoidosis as well as other rare diseases.

Bonus Episode | Sarcoidosis Town Hall: Is Prednisone “Poison?” presented by the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research

May 3, 2021

As part of Sarcoidosis Awareness month, the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research asked me to host a Town Hall meeting on the topic of prednisone with a panel that included Jessica Reid, a fellow sarc fighter, who has faced years of treatment with prednisone, Dr. Elliott Couser  Chair of FSR's Scientific Advisory Board, and Dr. Sanjay Shukla CEO of aTyr Pharma which is working on a steroid-sparing drug that may offer relief for patients so they do not have to endure the terrible side effects from prednisone. 

FSR asked me to host the event, which I gladly did after suffering from two years of prednisone therapy.



Here is the news release on the event.
