The Sickle Cell Adult Provider Network (SCAPN)

The Sickle Cell Adult Provider Network (SCAPN) was established in 2002 with a mission to establish and support an interactive network for healthcare providers and investigators who serve adults with sickle cell disease.  This was the first, and remains the only, national organization that offers a home for healthcare professionals from multiple disciplines who focus on adult-oriented research, clinical care, provider education/training, mentorship and advocacy in sickle cell disease.


February is Black History Month


We have much to celebrate in sickle cell disease. 

1.  Two additional drugs to add to the disease modifying therapy list and more in the pipeline.

2.  New recommendations to guide clinical development of SCD therapies

3.  Many educational conferences to choose from

4.  Promising gene therapy trials

5.  Increased patient education and support
