Welcome to the 7th Annual Sickle Cell Patient & Family Educational Symposium (The Warrior’s Convention).
Due to COVID-19, the Symposium will be held entirely online.
This year, we are doing things a bit differently. The entire Convention will focus on a series of Community Conversations featuring Warrior Patients and Caregivers. With the theme “Citizen Scientist: Harnessing the Power of the Patient and Caregiver Voice”, we will amplify the knowledge of our community and share these learned-lessons with any who wish to participate. As part of our commitment to ensure sickle cell patients and caregivers remain directly involved and engaged in the Sickle Cell Consortium efforts, we have developed a plan to maintain the direct interaction of the patient and caregiver community with industry, government, and other groups substituting the in-person experience. We’re excited to go on this journey with you.
As you register, you will have the option to select the Track(s) you will join and the Special Activities in which you will participate. You’ll notice on the agenda, that instead of individual sessions, we are having collective Community Conversations.
