In brief: Not likely
Sarcoidosis cause is still unknown but it has strong genetic component.
It tends to occur more frequently in african americans than in caucasians, females more than males, and often starts around age 20-40. Does not seem to be linked to environment, geographic location or occupation, so moving is not likely to help.

In brief: No
Location will not affect sarcoidosis since it is an autoimmune disease and is not environmental in nature.
