All Michigan Medicine community members are invited to participate in the third annual Sarcoidosis Awareness Walk, to be held in the University Hospital Courtyard.

Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease characterized by the formation of granulomas of tiny clumps of inflammatory cells in one or more organs of the body. As of now, there is no cure.

“I’ve been fighting Sarcoidosis for 27 years and it has taken a toll on my body. But I keep going and that’s because of everyone at Michigan Medicine,” said Sheron Williams, a patient ambassador who is helping organize the event. “I’d love to celebrate their work by including as many team members as possible in the annual walk.”

This year’s event will take place at noon on Saturday, April 27. Click here for more information and to register.
