The American Society of Hematology (ASH) is hosting a workshop that will train health care professionals in some of the skills necessary to establish a center focused on the needs of adults living with SCD.
Tackling SCD requires a team effort, therefore, ASH is encouraging teams to apply to attend the workshop. Members of this team may include: a business official from the institution where the center will be housed, health care professional who will work in the center, and a representative of the SCD community the center will serve.
Workshop participants will come to understand the basic components of SCD centers, the process for developing a business plan and partnerships for advocacy, the ins and outs of operations, and approaches to measuring impact and improving the quality of care.
The application is FREE and travel and lodging expenses will be paid for accepted participants.
Learn more and apply now on the ASH Website.
