SCD Resources for Clinicians

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) is committed to helping those who treat sickle cell disease (SCD) provide quality care, continue their professional development, and enhance their knowledge and expertise. As part of the Society’s larger effort to conquer SCD worldwide, ASH has developed the following resources for clinicians working to advance outcomes for persons with this disease.
