September is National Sickle Cell Awareness Month,  designated by Congress in 2017 to help focus attention on the need for research and treatment of sickle cell disease.

Last year. Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) hosted a Social Media Party during the month of September to celebrate National Sickle Cell Awareness Month.

We invited organizations to collaborate with us, including advocacy organizations, corporate and federal partners to share victories and other exciting information about all of the latest happenings in the sickle cell community.

Our Social Media Party consisted of using our hashtag #SCDHopeWins to share our collective posts and comment from the general public.

Our themes included:

  • Advocacy & Awareness on Facebook
  • Access to Care and Treatment on Twitter
  • Pharma Initiatives & Advances in Finding a Universal Cure on Instagram
  • Stay tuned for information about SCDAA’s 2019 activities for National Sickle Cell Awareness Month!
