Sickle Cell Disease Patient Study 2015

Dr. Chioma Ekechi, Clinical Coordinator, Adult Transition Program, Center for Sickle Cell Disease, Howard University would like to offer persons with SCD to participate in an on-going study.

This study, “Adult Transitioning Program amongst Sickle Cell Disease Patients”, is being sponsored by the District Of Columbia Government with the aim of proposing policies that will  benefit Sickle Cell Disease patients.

For this to be possible, the Center for Sickle Cell Disease at Howard University needs to collect candid response data from patients with SCD in posed in the study questionnaire.

Participants must be at least 13years old and reside in DC, Maryland or Virginia area. Participants will be compensated for their time and help towards the fulfillment of this study program.

The Adult Transition Program for Center for Sickle Cell Disease also organizes educational health workshops and in collaboration with the Advocate of Justice of Education Department has other workshops, all geared towards giving individuals and their families a tailored  wholesome, fulfilling wellness approach to battle this life-long health challenge.
