Hello everyone,

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. You can attend 1 or all 4 of them. You must pay and receive your confirmation BEFORE registration closes.

The classes are as follows:

E1. The Science of Sickle Cell

In this class we will cover the biology of sickle cell.  We will thoroughly cover the genetics of the disease as well as the biological causes of the symptoms and the long-term implication of these symptoms.

E2. Sickle Cell Complications

E3.  Health Disparities and Social Concerns
