In October 2007, the Statewide Steering Committee on Services for Adults with Sickle Cell Disease was formed (Chapter 435, Acts of 2007).
The Committee is charged with educating those with sickle cell disease, health care providers, and the public about State care and treatment. Also, the Committee is to establish partnerships with institutions and communities, as well as a statewide network of service providers for adults with sickle cell disease. In addition, the Committee will seek grant funding for a case management system for adults with sickle cell disease; a comprehensive education and treatment program for them; and a day infusion center. Moreover, the Committee will seek support for a campaign to educate health care providers regarding health disparities, community dynamics, cultural practices, behavioral and psychosocial issues, and standardized treatment and emergency room protocols.
