Supporting Your Transition From Pediatric To Adult Care

It’s hard enough managing your busy life – especially as a teenager or young adult who has sickle cell disease.  While we can’t help you with your calculus homework or future career choice, we can give you great advice on how you can better manage and improve your health.

Our Transition program focuses on people with sickle cell disease age 16 to 25 who are moving from pediatric care into adult care.  Community Health Workers (CHWs) are trained and certified to support you during this important transition.

Our CHWS Can Help You:

  • Better understand your medical conditions and treatments

  • Plan for work and career

  • Plan for technical school or college

  • Apply for medical insurance
