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.



The 2020 Report Card on the State of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) was published with 36 groups endorsing it.  The report card is also posted on the Sickle Cell Disease Coalition (SCDC) website at http://www.scdcoalition.org/report.html, which also highlights the activities in each category that contributed to progress over the past two years.  

To help you publicize these efforts, we have prepared social media pieces (the toolkit is available here) for your organization to easily share today and moving forward.  We encourage you to share these items with your communications teams and also personalize them.  Please copy the link in your browser if it is not clickable here.
