Today’s Faces of Sickle Cell Disease: Jeffrey Zuttah


Jeffrey Zuttah, 33, is a patient advocate, business development professional for the technology firm Quartet. In 2003, Jeffrey Zuttah was captain of state championship football team at his college and an academic whiz kid who dreamed of playing college football.

An All-American, he won a scholarship to the University of Michigan, but because of his disease, he wasn’t allowed to play. Zuttah transferred to Stanford University with his goal still intact. But less than a year into his football career, an SCD crisis ended his dream.

Zuttah, then, earned a degree in public policy and then an M.B.A. with honors from Harvard. Presently, he works with a firm that tries to improve outcomes for patients with concurrent chronic issues, and he volunteers as a patient advocate in local and national SCD organizations.
