Dr. Anderson's lecturing at Dr. Cooper's Health Disparity class

                                                                University of Delaware-Home of the Blue Hens       

        Dr. Cooper who is a University of Delaware Professor in Biology asked me to Guest Lecture in the University of Delaware's Health Disparities class.  I spoke openly and honestly about the perils of providing Holistic Comprehensive Compassionate adult care to people living with Sickle Cell Disease and the historic political perspective of race and Health Disparities.  The class seemed to enjoy the lively dialogue and also offered a perspective of a patient of mine who shared her personal experiences.       
   Although I was told that I did not have the Sickle Cell Trait as a child, I took it upon myself to get tested.  I also tested out a new investigational rapid point of care sickle cell trait test called,
 SickleScan.   BioMedomics is a point-of-care diagnostics company that aims to provide novel, rapid point-of-care tests to aid in the diagnosis of critical diseases. Find out more about this product at, www.biomedomics.com
