Fly in, register, relax with us and get to know your fellow Warrior siblings with icebreakers and evening reception. Early risers are invited to join us each morning for Yoga and morning workout sessions. A special morning workout session has been prepared for children and parents.
Thursday begins at 10 AM with the opening general session followed by a full day of workshops, presentations and panel discussions. We will have three tracks designed for adult warriors, teens and young adults, and children and caregivers. Come back after free time Thursday night for Warriors After Dark, for snacks and men-only, women-only discussions. Friday and Saturday sessions include 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 for sickle cell warriors and caregivers, by sickle cell warriors and caregivers.
Grab your ticket Friday night for a fun, games and entertainment hosted by the Sickle Cell Champions Association and PlayDate Atlanta. Come ready to dance, play, laugh and show the world that sickle cell does not define us. Get ready to bid on dozens of auction items to benefit the partner organizations of the Sickle Cell Community Consortium.
On Saturday evening we will have a Prom themed awards Gala. Join Bold Lips for Sickle Cell and the sickle cell patient/caregiver prom committee for the BOLD LIPS AND BOW TIES Warrior Prom. This will be an elegant celebration 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.
Sunday marks the official launch of our Clinical Trials Faith-based Initiative. Join us for a full buffet prayer and praise breakfast, followed by a special session “Meet me at the corner of Faith and Science” where we will discuss the intersection of faith and science and the important roll of the faith-based community in promoting minority participation in research and health education.
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.
