Welcome! For 43 years now, the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) has provided leadership nationally and through its member organizations to create awareness of the impact of sickle cell disease on the health, economic, social and educational well-being of the individual and their families and to create awareness of the requirements for resolution. It has provided effective direction in positioning sickle cell disease and its related problems as a major public health care concern and a global problem.
This year’s SCDAA Annual Convention continues to be a four-day conference designed to address the multi-factorial aspects of sickle cell disease. The event is set to offer an array of exciting activities designed to educate and motivate the entire community through the offering of new innovative symposiums, training seminars and interactive panel discussions. In an effort to advocate for improved quality of life for individuals and families affected with the sickle cell disease and its associated morbidity and mortality, related to the disease.
By popular demand the conference will bring back its signature events with new surprises. These activities include: The Annual Unity Gala, Vendor Expo, Patient Empowerment Luncheon and the new and improved Lonzie Lee Jones Symposium. In addition, for the first time in over 10 years, the convention will offer special provider and professional training for select professional groups and students!
Since 1971, SCDAA has served as America’s only voluntary national organization working full-time to resolve issues surrounding sickle cell disease. SCDAA is comprised of patients and their families in over 300 communities in North America.
I invite you to join the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America as an exhibitor or vendor during the 2015 Annual Convention to help us build the next generation of leaders and a sickle cell disease-free future for all.
