A Moment In Time Sarcoidosis Support Group (MD/DC/VA)

We meet monthly (at different locations) so that we can help each other deal with this illness focus on being healthy again. Please inquire about the next meeting date, time and location 

We discuss the illness, the symptoms, the medicine and side effects, the disability process; the emotional impact faced daily, healthy eating habits and lifestyle.  We are anticipating a special guest speaker monthly.

We are a Maryland based group that is determined to spread the word about this illness. We will use this on-line tool to support each other 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. 

This event is free and open to the public.  Education is a key to finding a cure.
