To be discussed are: Emerging issues in patient and patient advocacy; Emerging scientific and medical advances and; Partnership Opportunities with local organizations serving the sickle cell patient catchment. As a bridge between City of Hope and the African-American/Black community of Los Angeles County, it is CPAD’s mission to assist City of Hope in rolling out an effective sickle cell program that provides the best patient recruitment and experience!

This event is open to all interested, including patients, advocates, community members, and healthcare professionals.

Registration and breakfast start at 7:45AM. Official Event Welcome Opening is at 8:45AM.

Sickle cell experts from Children's Hospital LA (Dr. Thomas Coates) will share the exciting things happening at their respective institutions, as well as updates regarding the Clinic/Out-patient Infusion Center (Dr. Charles Otieno).

The event's moderator will be City of Hope's Founding Director of Health Equities, and Founder of African Ancestry, Dr. Rick Kittles. Come hear Bethel Adeh recount her experience as a patient living with Sickle Cell Disease.
