How can we help?
Sickle Cell Medical Advocacy Inc. supports a resilient community facing healthcare barriers. At SCMA, our certified Sickle Cell Healthcare Navigators, are here to virtually stand by sickle cell patients during hospital visits for acute pain crises. We remain in touch with the patients throughout their hospital stay, providing the latest national guidelines and other evidence-based resources for managing acute pain crises.
We ensure all healthcare providers involved in the patient's care are well-equipped with the right information at every step of the journey.
