SICKLE CELL AWARENESS MONTH CELEBRATIONS
To celebrate Sickle Cell Awareness Month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health will be releasing, #SickleCellStories on social media. This video series includes personal stories from patients, advocates, and family members, including a conversation between Assistant Secretary for Health ADM Brett Giroir, MD, and Surgeon General VADM Jerome Adams, MD, MPH.
Anne Alfa, an individual living with sickle cell disease, is the first story featured. Anne says,
“I want to be a hematologist, and it is because I’ve been dealing with sickle cell disease my whole life. Being a hematologist is just my purpose now.”
Find out more about Anne by watching her #sicklecellstory.
