SCMA thanks Dr. Lanetta Bronté-Hall, MD, MPH, MSPH , the founder & CEO of Foundation for Sickle Cell Disease Research (FSCDR) for the invitation to speak at their 16th annual symposium as a guest speaker on the patient panel. The conversation centered around clinical trials and why it is important for patients with Sickle Cell disease to participate in these trials. We need more Sickle Cell disease specific medications being researched for our community. It was indeed a great Symposium!
SCMA’s physician Dr. Simone collaborated with Sickle Cell Foundation of Minnesota, by doing a PowerPoint presentation to our Sickle Cell Community. She showed how the type of IV fluids they are given when in a crisis makes a difference, and explained what the correct IV fluids in a Sickle Cell crisis would be.

Celebrating world SickleCell day!
Our world SickleCell day event was
celebrated by inviting our national
and international organizations to
join the event. We welcomed
organizations from Ghana and
various parts of the Caribbean. We started by introducing the community to SCMA’s new doctor, Dr. Joanna Pascal who is also a caregiver to a toddler with Sickle Cell disease. Dr. Pascal is originally from Grenada. Our featured event was a presentation by Dr. Simone on how to self- advocate in the emergency room for urgent care when in a pain crisis.
