June 19 is World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. This is a global day observed annually to bring awareness about sickle cell disease (SCD) in order to educate and improve the quality of life of people living with SCD.
The Global Sickle Cell Disease Network has put together a list of global activities leading up to and on the day of WSCD 2020.
October 10 -11, 2019
SCiF is a two-day, intensive, educational update on sickle cell disease. This year’s conference will focus updates on management of commonly encountered sickle-related complications, curative therapies, and a reality check on current treatment options- blood transfusion, hydroxyurea and L-glutamine. At the end of each day, there will also be two complex debates which focus on topical issues for which there is no clear answer.
