The Sickle Cell Disease and the INOVA Adult Health Clinic raise awareness to help find better treatments and help for patients.
The life of a sickle cell warrior is often compounded by frequent hospitalizations, financial challenges, emotional problems, and constant setbacks. These factors leave many with the inability to work regular full-time jobs and can make it difficult to live a normal life.
Many adults with SCD turn to Social Security for help. Our team works with Social Security to train our community-based organizations on how to submit Social Security applications on behalf of their patients. This includes using Social Security’s online options to apply for disability benefits.
We look forward to working with you to help answer any questions. We work with All local county agencies in the Northern Virginia area so come in and let us help you figure out a plan. We want to ensure sickle cell disease is a priority for everyone.
