Public Event: Increasing Appointment Attendance: A Vital Opportunity to Improve Health Outcomes Among Those Living with Sickle Cell Disease Webinar

March 23, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sickle cell disease (SCD) affects approximately 100,000 Americans, predominantly those of African descent. The inherited blood disorder may cause acute pain episodes, infection and other serious health problems that can affect every organ in the body. Comprehensive and coordinated care can drastically improve health outcomes. But, according to a recent national study, a majority of patients have had to miss appointments that have the potential to improve their health and quality of life.

To better support patients and understand what causes missed appointments, NICHQ conducted a series of interviews with patients and providers. Join NICHQ for a free webinar on Monday, March 23, from 3-4 p.m. EST  where we’ll share findings and facilitate a discussion on change strategies.
