We are excited to announce that the 10th Annual Sickle Cell Disease Conference: Carolina Update, hosted collaboratively by the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Sickle Cell Disease Program and Duke University School of Nursing, is scheduled for two virtual sessions. The conference is free to attend and designed for health care providers and individuals/families living with sickle cell disease.
This two-day, virtual event will include speakers who are experts in Sickle Cell Disease, as providers or as a lived experience. Together, we will discuss new and innovative therapies for SCD. We are especially pleased to present a provider panel (pain) and a panel of patients living with SCD and their caretakers.
