Grow in your understanding of sickle cell disease, and then share what you know. Information is power!

Sickle cell disease is the most common inherited blood disease in the world. But it hasn’t received the funding and research needed to find a cure. Why? Because those who have it tend to be people whose voices have been historically silenced. Learn more about sickle cell disease and then, share what you know. When we are informed, we can work together toward a healthy and more inclusive future for everyone!

Dr. Julia LaMotte (she/her) is a pediatric psychologist who works with kids and families as they navigate chronic or life-limiting health conditions. She is an advocate for care for both the mind and body. Dr. Seethal Jacob (she/her) is a pediatric hematologist whose passion is caring for kids with sickle cell disease and advocating for better access to healthcare. She lives with her husband and 2 dogs.
