Know Your Sickle Cell Trait Status
Conozca su Estatus en Referencia a los Rasgos la Anemia Celulas Falciformes
Did You Know,
1 in 100 Hispanics carry the Sickle Cell Trait and can pass
on Sickle Cell Disease to their Children. The fastest growing ethnic group of people living with Sickle Cell Disease in the U.S. are Hispanics.
I want to thank Olga Matias, MSW (Medical Social Worker) for helping TOVA translate the Sickle Cell Trait pamphlet into Spanish. Olga has a Global Health background and has worked in Puerto Rico serving the adult Sickle Cell population.
All the best, Dr. Anderson
