Increasing Access to HCT for Sickle Cell Disease: Connecting Transplant Centers and Sickle Cell Prog

When:  Sep 28, 2022 from 13:00 to 14:00 (CT)

Join us on September 28 at 1 PM CT for this Joint ASTCT & NMDP Sickle Cell Webinar in honor of Sickle Cell Awareness Month. During this interactive roundtable-style webinar, our expert HCT and SCD panelists will discuss some of the latest research and outcomes in HCT for SCD, as well as share models for outreach and engagement between transplant centers and SCD programs. Panelists will further explore the role of HCT in the treatment of SCD and how to ensure access to HCT for these patients as a matter of health equity, including through patient programs like the Sickle Cell Warrior Program and HLA Today. This webinar will be relevant for both transplant centers and community hematologists/oncologists and SCD program providers who refer out for transplant and cellular therapies, discussing the role that all practitioners can play in improving access to HCT.
