In recognition of Sickle Cell Awareness Month, VCU Health’s Sickle Cell Program hosted a Career and Transition Fair for its sickle cell patients on Tuesday in the hospital’s Adult Outpatient Pavilion. Sickle Cell disease is a life-long, inherited blood disorder that can bring an abnormal amount of pain and weakness to the body as a result of jaundice or damage to organs. Sickle Cell disease primarily affects African-Americans. According to the Virginia Department of Health, 1 in 325 African-Americans are currently living with sickle cell disease in Virginia alone.
Tuesday’s outreach and program was a way to encourage patients to confidently take their next steps in life whether that’s community college, vocational training, and/or employment.
