Sickle Cell Medical Advocacy Inc advocates for urgent, high-quality care
for Sickle Cell patients in crisis resulting in better pain management and
shorter hospital stays.

Optimize patients’ emergency room visits and hospital stays by decreasing length of sickle cell episodes and hospitalization with multimodal, guideline-directed pain management.
How can we help?
Sickle Cell Medical Advocacy Inc. supports a resilient community facing healthcare barriers. At SCMA, our certified medical advocates, trained through the Medical Advocacy Training Program©, 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 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.
