The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) Miami-Dade County Chapter, Inc. was founded in 1978 as the Dade County Sickle Cell Foundation, Inc. We changed our name in 1995 to comply with other local affiliates of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) Miami-Dade Chapter. Its membership is comprised of lay persons as well as medical and allied health professionals. It is the successor of the Dade County Sickle Cell Advisory Council which was established as the “community arm” of the University of Miami Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center in 1973.
The SCDAA Miami-Dade County Chapter is affiliated with the SCDAA, the National Voluntary Health Agency and the affiliated Combined Federal Campaign. It is a charitable non-profit organization that is exempt from taxes under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. SCDAA Miami-Dade County Chapter, Inc. works closely with the University of Miami Sickle Cell Center in achieving its goals. It is, however, an independent and autonomous organization and reaches out to help all individuals and families affected by sickle cell disease in the Greater Miami-Dade County Community. It is funded by contributions from fraternal, civic and social organizations, individual donors and corporations.
