The mission of the Sickle Cell Program at Cohen Children’s Medical Center is to provide individualized, preventive medical and psychological care to children with sickle cell disease from birth to 21 years of age.

-Comprehensive care by pediatric hematologists and specialized nurse practitioners
-A specialized high-risk clinic
-Access to a pediatric pain specialist (inpatient and outpatient)
-Access to national clinical trials
