University of Calgary – SARC Research Tour

Friday February 10th 2023 – The CSO Board enjoyed the afternoon at the University of Calgary – Cumming School of Medicine where Dr. Daniel Vis (Respirologist & Clinical Lecturer Department of Medicine Lead Physician, Pulmonary Sarcoidosis Clinic SHC) gave us a great presentation on the current state of knowledge about Sarcoidosis. We also discussed how the donations being raised could be used with a brainstorm session about various ways to help bring awareness to more people and help the research team expand and collaborate with others across Alberta and the nation. Thank you Dr. Vis and Andrea for the wonderful afternoon and your exceptional work!
