Empowered to Transition: Emerging Adults Sickle Cell Education Series

Kids Conquering Sickle Cell Disease Foundation is excited to offer a new virtual transition education program with support sessions for adolescents, their parents, and young adults starting in August to December 2021. Our goal is to increase the number of emerging adults who successfully transition into adult care and provide support to prepare for adult life with a chronic condition.

The interactive session topics will include, but not be limited to, balancing life with sickle cell or related blood disease, healthy habits, warning signs of complications, post high school planning (college/workforce, nutrition, social life), mental health, managing pain, sexual health, organizing health care information, planning for emergencies away from home, etc.
