From Walter Clement Noel (the first most notable recorded sickle cell patient in the USA) to the advancements in gene therapy. From the initiatives of the Black Panther Party's Sickle Cell Anemia Testing to celebrating the entire month of September, which is now recognized globally as National Sickle Cell Awareness Month! We have come a long way! Also, you will be educated, connected, inspired, and will leave saying 'wow'! And if that's not enough, gather with us for the Celebration and Benefit Gala on Friday evening, September 15, 2023, as we honor those Sickle Cell Warriors who are 70+ years young.
