COVID-19 and Sickle Cell Disease and Access to Care Webinar
The 14th Annual Sickle Cell Disease Research & Educational Symposium & 43rd National Sickle Cell Disease Scientific Meeting, set for June 12-14, 2020, is rescheduled for September 23 – 25, 2020 due to the unprecedented outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus, COVID -19 throughout our global community.
We recognize that our attendees include individuals with sickle cell disease, a high-risk population as well as the providers and advocates that frequently come in contact with them. As such, we cannot hold a Symposium in June and have people gather from different parts of the world and put this precious population at risk.
The Foundation for Sickle Cell Disease Research is still hosting a June Pre-Symposium Webinar, with a full day focusing on Sickle Cell Disease and COVID–19.
Schedule for this Webinar:
June 11, 2020 from 1:00PM – 4:30PM
June 12, 2020 from 8:00AM – 5:00PM
