Sarcoidosis vs. Sarcoidoses: One Size Doesn't Fit All

Dates and Times

Start: 6/1/2022 8:00 AM
End: 6/1/2022 9:00 AM

Objectives

1. Provide an overview of sarcoidosis epidemiology, organ involvement and clinical course, with special attention to inherent racial disparities and the factors that may be responsible for these findings.

2. Suggest an interplay between race, genetics and environment, resulting in distinct sarcoidosis phenotypes or “sarcoidoses.”

3. Through case presentations, review the best screening practices and general treatment strategies, particularly for patients with dangerous organ involvement.

4. Characterize the unique clinical presentations of sarcoidosis in World Trade Center exposed firefighter and community cohorts, in comparison to general population studies.

5. Demonstrate the need to formulate strategies for control, treatment, and even prevention of disease in Black Americans or those with high risk exposures who are at the greatest risk for developing life-altering or life-threatening disease.
