Thursday is Registration and our welcome dinner. The full day dual-track symposium on Friday & Saturday develops coping strategies for every aspect of your life, including dealing with work, school, and relationships. We have special programs for teens, parents, couples, and adults living with sickle cell. Our roundtable panels, plenary sessions, and educational lunches all have been developed with your learning in mind.
On Saturday evening we will have a celebration/dance party for all participants, and an awards banquet that celebrates the nominees of the Sickle Cell Community Service Awards; self-sacrificing people who support us in the fight against sickle cell disease. We will also introduce the 2016 Sickle Cell Warrior Prince & Princess, youth who exemplify living well with sickle cell. On Sunday morning we will have a prayer breakfast before half the assembly embarks on their journies. Later that afternoon, we will have an advocacy training course, to jumpstart those interested in community activism. These are just some of the many programs we have planned for the weekend.
Please feel free to share this website as well as the attached flyer with your community and networks. This program was designed by the sickle cell community for the sickle cell community, and is directly focused on supporting warriors (patients), and their families in the fight against sickle cell disease.
