Sandra Conroy, who has sarcoidosis , knows first-hand the frustrations and obstacles that are often encountered by persons with this disease. When she was diagnosed in 1984, information on sarcoidosis was extremely limited. As a result of her extensive research, and using her own patient questionnaire , she developed a computer data base relating to the symptoms and demographics of sarcoidosis patients. She also authored the Sarcoidosis Resource Guide and Directory. In 1992, Ms Conroy founded the National Sarcoidosis Resource Center, which has grown into an international organization with a registry of over 30,000 patients. She has been invited to speak at numerous medical conferences and health forums in the United States and other parts of the world. Other accomplishments include cable TV's CAPE' award for program excellence, being honored by City News as one of New Jerseys' "100 Most Influential", numerous newspaper articles and a feature article by Essence Magazine.
