Programs and Services

The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Disease Program at Children’s National Hospital has a variety of programs and services to help care for and treat your child’s needs. Your child will have access to the latest advances in technology, with treatments based on our cutting-edge research and our commitment to providing age-appropriate, personalized care for your child.

  • Blood Donor Ambassador Program: At Children’s National Hospital, the Blood Donor Ambassador Program was created to meet the growing need for blood donations for children with sickle cell disease.
  • Infant Sickle Cell Program: Each year, 80 newly diagnosed infants with sickle cell disease are seen in our comprehensive Infant Sickle Cell Program. In this clinic, patients receive consultation and education about sickle cell disease and common complications.  
  • Sickle Cell Pulmonary Clinic: This clinic specializes in caring for children with sickle cell disease who also have lung disease, including asthma. 
  • Sickle Cell Adolescent Transition Clinic: As your child transitions into young adulthood, our clinic provides them with education and tools to help them self-manage their own care.
