We enthusiastically invite you to The Sickle Cell Association of New Jersey's 4th Annual Statewide Sickle Cell Symposium Saturday, November 19 from 9:30am to 3:00pm at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.
Our goal is to improve and expand patient and provider knowledge and to improve the treatment for sickle cell disease. This year we will feature a Living Well With Sickle Cell Patient Panel during the Breakfast Meet and Greet. Workshops & Presenters will be announced soon.
And back again by popular demand is a performance by New York's Big Apple Playback Theatre, the Lunch and Learn, the Youth Research Expedition and museum admission to the exhibit halls.
We're planning an exciting program suitable for individuals effected by sickle cell disease, health care professionals who provide care for patients with the condition from infancy to adulthood (including private practice physicians, hospitalists, ED staff, nurses, social workers), and the community at large.
The Dr. Charles F. Whitten Awards for outstanding service will be presented to individuals and organizations.
