2020 Summer Transition Workshop Registration

SCDAA-MI invites you to empower yourself as you transition from pediatric to adult sickle cell care. Join our Transition Workshops on Wednesday, August 5 from 4-6 p.m. and Thursday, August 13 from 4-6 p.m. Please complete the following form to register your participation. 

About the medical transition period in sickle cell: Young adulthood tends to be a very difficult time for individuals with sickle cell. Unfortunately, not as many primary care physicians are familiar with the disease and patients often face difficulty accessing competent care and face discrimination when they do seek care. This workshop is a start to helping patients manage these types of challenges to assist them in staying as healthy as possible.

Everyone who returns the assessment will receive a Patient Empowerment Toolkit – a backpack loaded with sickle cell essentials including a thermal blanket, thermometer, incentive spirometer, hand sanitizer, a mask, and resources to help maintain and track your health, along with guidelines you can give to your providers to help maintain your care.

Participants who complete both sessions and the post-workshop survey will receive a certificate of completion and a $50 gift card.
