Education and Awareness

There are a number events planned with the combined effort of our team and some wonderful people, helping in spreading awareness about Sickle Cell Disease. These topics were picked in consultation with the Sickle Cell Community on different social media platform.

The education session started 5th February 2022 and will run to December 2022. This year we have a Sickle Cell Warrior / Caregiver / Advocate / Healthcare Provider present a topic every Saturday of the year. Follow us to find out more. Join Our Movement.
