SCMA is proud to announce the recent graduation of its inaugural class from the Medical Advocacy Training program. We welcome our new class of Certified Medical Advocates! We look forward to their contribution to the Sickle Cell community as they stand up for patients in the emergency room and in the hospital when those patients need it most.

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.
