Bringing awareness about rare and chronic health conditions is a first step in finding a cure, Deborah Rice believes.

That’s why Rice, who has pulmonary sarcoidosis (pronounced SAR-COY-DOE-SIS), is taking a lead role in Walgreens’ first Sarcoidosis Awareness campaign, taking place Sept. 16-27. Customers at 95 Walgreens drugstores across Alabama will see Rice’s profile and can get informational fliers as part of a sarcoidosis education and awareness opportunity.

On Monday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., Rice will share about her personal sarcoidosis journey with customers at the Walgreens at 3020 Clairmont Ave. in Birmingham. Pulmonologist Dr. Joseph Barney of UAB Hospital, which is a founding member of the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) Global Sarcoidosis Clinic Alliance (GSCA). Barney, who has treated more than 4,000 sarcoidosis patients during his 23-year career, will answer questions, along with FSR Chief Strategy Officer Tricha Shivas.
