Sickle cell disease (SCD) can affect many areas, including daily life, and some of the effects can be lifelong. More so, SCD impacts many patients’ quality of life in depression, anxiety, executive function, and more.
With thanks in part to Bluebird Bio for making this series possible, and in partnership with The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, OffScrip Health presents “The Sickle,” a three-part limited series for patients, caregivers, and community members facing the disease.
Throughout each episode, you will hear from the people living with SCD and experts who work every day to improve their lives. We’ll learn about the lifelong care, interpersonal relationships, and medical disparities that people with SCD live with and what we can do to improve them.
