Honoring Legacies of Dr. Paul Swerdlow & Sickle Cell Caregivers A Memorial Program to Support Patients and Student Scholars.
The FSCDR & Phoenicia BioScience and are sponsoring a Student Scholar and My Sickle Cell Health Passport Program and to carry on traditions of Sickle Cell Specialists who touched many lives.
My Sickle Cell Health Passport will be pilot-tested by teen and young adult patients as an aid to help learn about essential care and to facilitate their own care in medical facilities new to them, or where the complexities of sickle cell disease are not well known.
The Program will also fund Summer Scholarships for high school and college students to learn about sickle cell disease, the important roles provided by different medical caregivers, and promote RESPECT for all persons living with sickle cell disease. The Program will provide a stipend for shadowing in Sickle Cell Treatment programs, using the Passport as a guide.
To Support Students Scholars and this Program: Donations can be made to the FSCDR, designated for the RESPECT PROGRAM
