If you are a researcher, community-based member organization, physician, nurse, social worker or someone working on behalf of people living with sickle cell disease and their families, Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. would like to highlight your work at the 50th Annual National Convention October 11-15, 2022 (Virtual).
Because the convention will be virtual, those whose abstracts are accepted will have to submit a 5-minute pre-recorded video of their presentation. Presentations will be judged during “virtual poster walks,” which will include oral Q&A sessions after the video.
To be eligible, abstracts must meet guidelines and be submitted by June 30, 2022. Late submissions will not be accepted. Abstracts will be reviewed and ranked by the national abstract review committee. Abstract finalists will be judged during oral presentations and presented at the gala. “Best Abstract” in each category will be announced at the conclusion of the SCDAA 50th Annual National Convention. Special awards for the best student and trainee abstracts will also be given.
Abstracts submission date is ended.
