The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) named Regina Hartfield as CEO and president effective Jan. 14, 2022. Hartfield has served on the association’s board of directors for three years, including as chair of the fundraising committee.
“Regina is an outstanding choice as our next CEO,” said Thomas Johnson, chair of the SCDAA board. “Her experience on the SCDAA board has provided her great insight into the organization’s strategy as well as the priorities of those SCDAA exists to serve, namely the individuals across America living with sickle cell disease and their families. Regina understands and appreciates the importance of keeping the individual with sickle cell disease and his or her needs at the forefront of SCDAA’s mission and daily purpose.”
“I am excited and deeply honored to be stepping into this important role,” Hartfield said. “This is a pivotal time in SCDAA’s 50-year history. Awareness of sickle cell disease and its impact on those living with it or carrying the trait has never been greater. My time as an SCDAA board member, coupled with my longstanding experience in the nonprofit and for-profit worlds, enable me to bring a unique perspective to this role. I look forward to working with the incredible staff, the board and the member organizations on behalf of those impacted by sickle cell disease and related conditions.”
