“Sickle cell disease is a destructive nemesis. The keys to winning this life-long battle are information and inspiration. Information must be readily available, not only concerning the latest advances and pharmacological modalities, but also the familial genetic predisposition for the disorder. Also, our society as a whole needs inspiration. We must be inspired to take charge and fight for more research and funding for patients so they have a marked decrease of symptoms and a better quality of life,” explains Dr. Corey Hebert, Chief Medical Officer at Dillard University.
