Webinar: A Status Report on Sickle Cell Disease: Opportunities and Challenges Ahead
An estimated 100,000 people in the U.S. live with sickle cell disease, a set of genetic blood disorders that can cause a range of health complications, chronic conditions and premature death. The disparities are deep among different races and ethnicities, as the disease occurs in about 1 in 365 Black newborns and is far more prevalent in other parts of the world.

What are the latest advances to better understanding and combating this disease? How can clinicians and community care providers work together to best serve children and adults affected by it? In this webinar, hear about cutting-edge treatments for sickle cell disease, efforts to bring more attention to the disease and how to curb the deep inequities that characterize it. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from top experts in the field and to hear lessons for how they can make an impact in their own communities.
