On April 8-9, 2019 the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) hosted its annual Advocacy Day Event in Washington, DC.
This year’s Advocacy Day was an opportunity for patients and caregivers affected by sickle cell disease (SCD) to advocate for stable funding for research, better healthcare access, expanded programs, and increased education and awareness for the SCD community. Participants met with their members of Congress to share their stories and key legislative issues impacting the SCD community.
Congrats to SCDAA and its chapters for a successful event!
