Therapeutic Options in Sickle Cell Disease

Saturday, April 28, 2018

MUSC Drug Discovery Building

97 Jonathan Lucas Street

Charleston, SC


Conference Description

Sickle Cell Disease is the most common inherited blood disorder. Due to improvements in childhood care, many more patients are living into adulthood. There is a shortage of trained physicians and nursing staff who treat adult patients, resulting in severe misunderstanding, disease stigmatization, and poorly delivered care. This year’s conference will focus on therapeutic options in sickle cell disease.


NEW! This year immediately following the Sickle Cell Disease Symposium will be the Sickle Cell Statewide Network Annual Gathering. Lunch will be provided! Please mark on your registration form if you plan to attend this afternoon workshop.


For more information about the Sickle Cell Statewide Network, please email or visit their website at


You can view the schedule of events here.

Register here!

For questions, please call 843-876-1925 or email


We hope to see you in April!
