2016 Patient & Family Educational Symposium

June 13, 2016 | scconvention | blog, Meetup

Sickle Cell Warriors, Inc. joins the Sickle Cell Community Consortium for the Annual Patient, Family & Community Educational Symposium. The Theme for this year is Spirit Indestructible. 

Go to WAR with sickle cell disease at the annual Patient & Family Educational Symposium in Los Angeles, CA, July 28-31, 2016!

Now in its third year, the event serves as an annual retreat and educational symposium. It was created to allow members of the sickle cell community to unite to educate, encourage and empower one another, with a chance to rest and re-energize for the ongoing battle.

The inaugural event in 2013 set the tone with a cruise to Nassau, Bahamas, a tradition that will continue on odd years in the future. In 2014, we had a memorable takeover of Atlanta, GA. This year’s convention will be Los Angeles, CA.

Guests will have access to a variety of activities, including a formal dinner, a talent show, scavenger hunt, multiple educational symposiums, peer roundtables, informational booths and more.

The Convention is open to anyone whose life has been touched by sickle cell in some way. Family, friends, caregivers, healthcare workers and warriors with any variation of the sickle syndromes are welcome. The focus of this event is the entire sickle cell community. At WAR, patients and families come first!

There are more than 100,000 people in the United States living with sickle cell disease, with hundreds of thousands more dedicated to standing on the front lines with those are affected. Come stand united with your fellow warriors in the WAR on sickle cell this summer. Registration is now open. Spots are limited, so reserve your space today!

Be educated. Be supported. Be inspired. Be empowered.
