The conference theme, “Empowering our Future,” was chosen to highlight the need to empower physicians and patients as they battle Sickle Cell from their respective positions. The objectives of the conference are: To alert the Indiana community about the continued presence of SCD and to inform the community about the many lesser known varieties of pain (psychological, emotional, social, economic and spiritual) that accompany the physical pain associated with SCD. To empower health care providers by providing up-to-date recommended treatment protocols for SCD. To empower those who have SCD by providing information that allows them to better care for themselves.
