OMRF and the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research are hosting a sarcoidosis patient education conference on Saturday, June 22, at OMRF’s Oklahoma City campus at 825 N.E. 13th St.
Sarcoidosis patients and their families, as well as clinical professionals, are invited to attend.
In sarcoidosis, cells in the immune system that cause inflammation overreact and cluster together to form tiny lumps called granulomas. If too many of these granulomas form in a single organ, this can cause the organ to malfunction or even fail.
Leaders in the field will provide information on new sarcoidosis research, treatment options and clinical care.
The conference costs $10 and will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lunch is included, and parking is free. Registration is limited.
