It is with great sadness that SCDAA shares the news of the passing of Monica Rockwell, executive director of SWGA Sickle Cell Awareness, on April 10, 2024. Monica was a tireless advocate and dedicated community health worker. She was a steadfast supporter of SCDAA’s education and outreach efforts and worked with Kevin Amado, our Senior Community Impact and Education Manager, to develop a new CHW training program. She was a presenter during our 2022 and 2023 Annual National Conventions and was a reoccurring guest speaker for our P.O.W.E.R ECHO CHW Trainings. We are honored to have had the chance to learn from her and grateful for the time she shared with our warriors, caregivers and SCDAA team. Our sincerest condolences go out to her family, friends and loved ones. Her impact will not be forgotten. Click here to read more about Monica.
