Sickle Cell Trait Toolkit


Sickle Cell Trait Toolkit

 

June 19 was World Sickle Cell Day, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has featured the Sickle Cell Trait Toolkit on its website. The webpage has links to a variety of fact sheets on sickle cell trait.

The materials, many available in Spanish and French, are located on the Division of Blood Disorders' website
