You do not have to attend all of the classes, just the ones you wish to attend. Each class is offered twice for convenience sake. The classes will be offered online in the evening usually at 6pm CST.  We may also have a weekend session depending on the demand. There may be some slight variation but that is the general time.  Register below. Please PRINT your confirmation page.


The expert patient course load consists of a series of a la carte classes designed to assist Warriors to become sickle cell disease experts.  Each class will be 45 min to 1hr long, will be offered independently and can be completed individually or as part of a series.  The classes in the Expert Patient Series will be offered for a one-time fee of $30 per class.
