Last week,

    I had coffee with Dr. Samir Ballas, Emeritus Professor at Thomas Jefferson University and the Cardeza Foundation.  Dr. Ballas started the 1st Adult Sickle Cell Program in Pennsylvania in the mid-1970s.  He is one of the world's leading experts in treating adult sickle cell problems and pain management.   I learned so much from reading is book-Sickle Cell Pain and the wealth of knowledge he so willing to pass down to the next generation of healthcare providers.  As an alumni of Thomas Jefferson University, having coffee with Dr. Ballas was quite an honor.

All the best,
Dr. Anderson
