Advocacy Day is an opportunity for patients and caregivers affected by sickle cell disease to learn how to advocate for issues that are important to them. Participants will learn about the key legislative issues that are important to individuals living with SCD and their families, including promoting stable funding for research, better healthcare access and increased education and awareness for the sickle cell community throughout the country.
