Sickle Cell

The Sickle Cell program at Children’s National Medical Center is one of the busiest in the country treating more than 1,400 patients each year.  Advocating for patients with sickle cell is a key initiative at CHAI where we are collaborating with a number of national organizations to bring awareness of the disease to the forefront, and work to improve the lives of pediatric patients who suffer from the debilitating symptoms associated with the disease.

We work closely with The Bobby Engram Foundation; we participate annually in the Sickle Cell Walk ; and Children’s National hosted the first annual United Nations Sickle Cell Awareness Day in April, 2009.
