2019 Sickle Cell Disease Symposium

Conference Description

Sickle Cell Disease is the most common inherited blood disorder. Due to improvements in childhood care, many more patients are living into adulthood. There is a shortage of trained physicians and nursing staff who treat adult patients, resulting in severe misunderstanding, disease stigmatization, and poorly delivered care. This year’s conference will focus on the longitudinal course of sickle cell disease.
