Join us to learn how we can improve and extend the lives of those affected by sickle cell disease.
Sickle cell disease is an inherited disorder that affects red blood cells and can cause anemia, pain and many other problems.
If you are a leader in your community, we urge you to tune in to this free informative webinar before National Sickle Cell Awareness Month in September.
Panelists scheduled to attend:
- Dr. Yvette Miller of the American Red Cross
- Dr. Carolyn Rowley of Cayenne Wellness Center
- Dr. Amber Yates of Texas Children’s Hospital
- Dr. Wanda Whitten-Shurney, Pediatrician, Advocate, CEO and Medical Director for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (Michigan Chapter)
This webinar will explore vital and often overlooked information about sickle cell disease, including how the American Red Cross supports one of the most critical patient treatments: blood transfusion.
In the days between now and this event, we also invite you to join our virtual blood drive during Sickle Cell Awareness Month by visiting sleevesup.redcrossblood.org/campaign/sickle-cell-warrior
This is the time to take care of one another, and blood donation is essential to ensuring the health of those in our community, especially sickle cell patients.
