Sickle Cell in Focus Conference 2019

After another successful event at the NIH/NHLBI, USA, in October 2018, we are pleased to announce that Sickle Cell in Focus (SCiF) will be held for the second-time in Kingston, Jamaica on October 10-11, 2019. The 13th annual SCiF conference will be co-hosted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and The University of West Indies.

SCiF is a two-day, intensive, educational update on sickle cell disease. This year’s conference will focus updates on management of commonly encountered sickle-related complications, curative therapies, and a reality check on current treatment options- blood transfusion, hydroxyurea and L-glutamine. At the end of each day, there will also be two complex debates which focus on topical issues for which there is no clear answer.

This two-day intensive educational conference is geared towards clinicians, academics, and other healthcare professionals involved in sickle cell disease around the world.

This event has ended.
