The Sickle Cell Adult Provider Network (SCAPN)
The Sickle Cell Adult Provider Network (SCAPN) was established in 2002 with a mission to establish and support an interactive network for healthcare providers and investigators who serve adults with sickle cell disease. This was the first, and remains the only, national organization that offers a home for healthcare professionals from multiple disciplines who focus on adult-oriented research, clinical care, provider education/training, mentorship and advocacy in sickle cell disease.
February is Black History Month
A good read is a book called Dying in the City of the Blues:Sickle Cell Anemia the Politics of Race and Health by Keith Wailoo
Wailoo follows the disease and its sufferers from the early days of obscurity before sickle cell's "discovery" by Western medicine through its rise to clinical, scientific, and social prominence in the 1950s; to its politicization in the 1970s and 1980s. Looking forward, he considers the consequences of managed care on the politics of disease in the twenty-first century.
