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.


The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) announces the 45th Annual National Convention on Sickle Cell Disease will be held October 25-28, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Registration is now open and abstracts must be submitted by June 15, 2017.
