We have certified single gene genetic counselors and educators onsite to provide counseling for children, adolescents, adults and families affected by sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait.

The Counseling program is designed to offer awareness to individuals about the disease, provide support, while ensuring that their psychological and social needs are continually met.

Counseling is offered to:

Clients with the Sickle Cell Disease and their family
Trait carriers
At risk couples and individuals
Newborn Screening program clients and family

We also provide forums for adolescents; young adults; adults and couples with sickle cell disease to share concerns, exchange ideas and engage in community events and activities.
