This Annual Sickle Cell Symposium offered by Johns Hopkins University aims to address the paucity of sickle cell knowledge among healthcare providers and team members who provide care for patients with sickle cell disease by providing information and development activities to promote quality improvement in sickle cell disease care.


What you will study

Sickle Cell Disease is the most common of the rare diseases. Despite over 100,000 individuals living with sickle cell disease, there is a lack of providers knowledgeable in the management of sickle cell disease. This barrier to accessing quality evidence-based care leads to poor outcomes and poor utilization.

Sickle cell providers who participate in this Annual Sickle Cell Symposium offered by Johns Hopkins University will receive knowledge and tools necessary to deliver effective, evidence-based care by affecting healthcare practices at the level of the individual and the larger health system.

  • Manage individuals with illness related to sickle cell disease.
