Our drive to raise awareness of sickle cell disease has been featured on BBC Radio Leicester.
The Centre’s Pamela Campbell-Morris together with Dr Subarna Chakravarty, Consultant Paediatric Haematologist of Kings College Hospital, were interviewed by the station on Sunday, July 9.
The discussion was on the Dulcie Dixon show aimed at Leicestershire’s African and Caribbean community.
It was part of an educational drive by the Centre alongside our funders and partners CLAHRC East Midlands launched on World Sickle Cell Day, which took place on Monday, June 19.
Sickle cell is a blood disorder usually inherited in which red blood cells develop abnormally, and currently affects around 15,000 people in England.
During the day resources were shared on our website and social media, including an infographic factsheet called ‘Living with Sickle Cell Disease’ in a bid to educate and inform.
