Sarcoidosis: Seek Answers. Inspire Results

#Respiratorydecade supports April Sarcoidosis Awareness Month!!!
The CHEST Foundation of the American College of Chest Physicians and the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research have teamed up to launch Sarcoidosis: Seek Answers. Inspire Results.a campaign that encourages people living with sarcoidosis to take a proactive role in their treatment plan. 
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease wherein the immune system goes into overdrive, causing cells to group together into clumps called granulomas. While more than 90 percent of cases affect the lungs and lymph nodes, sarcoidosis can affect any organ and interfere with the organ’s function. 
Because each sarcoidosis case is unique, it’s important to ask questions and follow a tailored treatment plan. If you are living with or caring for a loved one with sarcoidosis, we encourage you to download and discuss the following resources with your health-care team.
