Sickle Cell in Focus Conference 2018
After an exciting event in Kingston, Jamaica in October 2017, we are thrilled to announce that the 12th annual Sickle Cell in Focus (SCiF) conference will return to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on October 22-23, 2018.
SCiF is a two-day, intensive, educational update on sickle cell disease. This year’s conference will focus on management of the older adult patients, curative therapies, systems medicine, and will also include 2 debates on issues for which there are no clear answers.
This comprehensive and global exploration of the current medical trends and research results in sickle cell disease and thalassemia is geared towards consultants, trainees, doctors, healthcare professionals, and academics interested in hemoglobin disorders.
