The Symposium is an exciting three-day meeting inviting more than 400 leading researchers, physicians, clinicians, stakeholders, advocates, and social workers with the common goal of finding better treatment, and ultimately, a cure for sickle cell disease. Our speakers originate from every corner of the United States, U.S. Territories, the United Kingdom, Canada, Ghana, Sierra Leone, France, Switzerland, Brazil, Uruguay, Jamaica, Haiti, and Thailand, among others. Our three themes of this Symposium are:
- Navigating the Emerging Complexity of Reimbursement for Sickle Cell Disease Care
- Addressing the Dearth in Sickle Cell Disease Provider Care
- Reaching National Consensus on Joint Actions to Increase Access to Sickle Cell Disease Care
We are also accepting LATE-BREAKING ABSTRACTS with a focus on COVID-19 in SCD. These are due August 31, 2020 and notifications are sent September 14, 2020.
