Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) and Emerge Woman Magazine have a mutual goal of ensuring that as many people as possible know about sickle cell disease (SCD), sickle cell trait (SCT) and the complications of this rare blood disorder that can be life-threatening.
“SCDAA is grateful for this new media partnership and the impact it will have in disseminating information about SCD and provide a new forum for those living with and affected by SCD,” said SCDAA President and CEO Beverley Francis-Gibson. “Emerge Woman Magazine is a beautiful new publication that highlights accomplished and successful woman from all walks of life, and this unique partnership will provide exciting new opportunities for SCDAA to inspire others and to keep SCD at the forefront of health discussions.”
Emerge Woman Magazine Founder and CEO, Qiana Cressman states, “The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America is the standard of excellence and top organization for research, education, fundraising and community service for sickle cell disease. This cause is critically important to me as founder of Emerge Woman Magazine and as a community leader having worked with sickle cell patients for 22 years. Additionally, I lost a relative to this disease. Our publication is passionate about partnering with SCDAA Leadership to provide a platform that enhances awareness, funding and supports this amazing network of members and patient families across the country.”
