The Sickle Cell Adult Provider Network (SCAPN) was established in 2002 with a mission to establish a network for healthcare providers 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.

    • difficult clinical issues, research priorities, and collaboration, patient advocacy.
  • Educate and disseminate information about adult sickle cell disease to all health care providers:
    • clinical management and research opportunities
