Advocating For Your Health
Our mission at the CSC Support Group 4 Kids, Corp., is to provide the resources, information an advocacy you need to live well with sickle cell. One of our greatest resources are Community Health Workers (CHW). These professionals are trained and certified so that they can help you better manage and improve your health.
Here’s How Your Community Health Worker Can Help Persons With Sickle Cell Disease:
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
Locate support groups
Working With Medical Community To Achieve Better Health Outcomes
A critical part of our mission at the CSC Support Group 4 Kids Corp, is to work with primary care providers, specialists and health care systems. Our collaborative work with the medical community provides the best opportunity to help persons live well with sickle cell.
Our Community Health Workers (CHWs) are trained and certified to support health care providers. They also work closely with individuals living with sickle cell and their families, as well as other community partners. This makes them uniquely qualified to help bridge the gaps that exist with access to care, medical costs and the persistent health challenges persons with sickle cell encounter.
