Review for SICKLE CELL AWARNESS FOUNDATION INC , Jamaica, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

sickle cell disease is the most common inherited blood disorder in the united states, affecting 70,000 to 80,000 Americans this disease is estimated to occur in 1 in 5,00 African American and 1 in 1,000 to 1,400 Hispanic American. The SCAF have found that there are great ignorance concerning sickle cell disease in general, and treatment amongst the general public and Medical providers. Currently there is no effective cure available for sickle cell disease or trait in the event of a crisis. We focus on distributing awareness and knowledge of sickle cell and the importance of early intervention, prevention efforts, Childcare, Pain management, and urgent treatment.

Role:  Board Member & I went to Trinidad to educate Doctors and Health providers on sickle cell and its effects on families.
