Hello Partners in Advocacy!
The Sickle Cell/Thalassemia Patients Network (SCTPN) on behalf of all of the other sickle cell disease (SCD) community organizations are circulating a letter to the Chairs of the Assembly and Senate Health Committees for support of the Sickle Cell Disease Education and Detection bill S1839.
