The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) coordinates the care of adults with sickle cell disease in Arkansas. The legislature has provided funds for UAMS to develop a program that would benefit this underserved, minority population. As UAMS improves and standardizes the treatment of patients with sickle cell disease through the Adult Sickle Cell Clinical Program (ASCCP), not only will this minority population experience relief of suffering, but the entire state will also experience an improved well-being.

This centre is ready with 24/7 call centre for both healthcare providers as well as for patient and families. The Adult Sickle Cell Clinical Program realizes the primary care providers of Arkansas need easily accessible resources and support services in order to provide the best standard of care available and make treatment guidelines easily accessible. This centre also provides resources to adopt or maintain a healthy lifestyle, take steps to prevent and control complications, learn ways to cope with pain to sickle cell patients.
