Sickle Cell & Chronic Pain Management Symposium by Kids Conquering Sickle Cell Disease Foundation
Kids Conquering Sickle Cell Disease Foundation thanks supporters of our 2022 Sickle Cell & Chronic Pain Symposium. We are looking forward to another great symposium for 2023. We offered an education conference that certainly offered a unique opportunity to learn the latest advances in clinical care, transition services, and emerging new therapies including updates for curative treatment options.
This was a unique conference for the community of patients, care givers, health care providers, social workers, students and those with interest in sickle cell and chronic pain. This conference was not only for attendees with interest in sickle cell. We have a community that lives with chronic pain suffering in silence. We welcomed our community with interest in chronic pain and sickle cell to learn about the latest effective therapies bringing help & hope.
