That is a good govenor you have there. I had never heard of a granuloma before sarcoidosis.
The govenor must have done some research. I wish more doctor's would.

I LIVE HERE IN ALABAMA, AND HAVE HEARD THAT DR. BARNEY IS THE BEST. SO MANY PEOPLE SPEAK HIGHLY OF HIM, I MEAN PATIENTS. BUT MY INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER HIM.

Governor Bentley is a retired dermatologist. Dr. Barney is considered the only Sarcoidosis specialist in Alabama, ( there are others that treat sarcoidosis ). He also does research and studies in Sarcoidosis.
Oz, He likes to travel, He couldn't stay, we need him here.

It was a wonderful experience to be at the capitol when the governor signed the proclamation. It was very inspiring that Governor Bentley was interested in the types of sarcoidosis that each of us had. Thanks for coordinating the event, Alice.

Sarcoidosis and the Body
Sarcoidosis is a "multiorgan" disease - meaning it almost always involves more than one organ. It's unpredictable and affects different people in different ways.

You can learn about the ways in which sarcoidosis affects the body in FSR's Sarcoidosis and the Body brochure.
