World Sickle Cell Day 2020 – Call to Action
June 19th is officially designated as World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. As a part of the SiNERGe shine the light on sickle cell campaign we are asking the community to “mask up” for sickle cell. Individuals living with sickle cell disease are more susceptible to getting COVID-19, thus we are “masking up” to help protect them while spreading awareness and important information about sickle cell disease.
