Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (of which we are a member) will participate in National Sickle Cell Awareness Month in September by holding a series of events and supporting the events of member organizations. National Sickle Cell Awareness Month was designated by Congress to focus attention on the need for research and treatment of sickle cell disease.
“Individuals and organizations can join our efforts to bring attention to sickle cell disease by engaging elected officials for proclamations, hosting awareness events, distributing educational information to dispel the myths about sickle cell disease and lighting public spaces, buildings and landmarks red,” said Beverley Francis-Gibson, president and CEO of Sickle Cell Disease Association.
The 2020 Sickle Cell Disease Therapeutics Conference will take place virtually Sept. 15 at 9 a.m. Learn more and register online.
A Sickle Cell Awareness Month Twitter Party, an online Twitter conversation hosted by the Sickle Cell Disease Association where participants interact, share, learn and celebrate by posting tweets using the hashtag #SickleCellMatters, will take place Sept. 21, 23, and 25 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Register online.
Sickle Cell Disease Foundation invites all of our sickle cell family, advocacy organizations, corporate and federal partners, and supporters to use the hashtags #SickleCellMatters, #SickleCellAwarenessMonth, #SickleCellBham #2020SickleCellBhamVirtualWalk in social media posts about sickle cell disease throughout September.
