Sickle cell disease is a life-threatening blood disorder that primarily impacts Black and Brown patients across the globe. In recognition of World Sickle Cell Day, this presentation will discuss the disease, its limited treatments, and the intrinsic racism within our healthcare system that has limited clinical advances and stifled the care of our patients for decades.

This online program is free and open to Mass General staff, patients, and the general public. No registration needed.
