We are looking for a dedicated volunteer to help us stay connected with the Sickle Cell Disease community and keep them engaged and informed about educational, research development, advocacy, and support resources through email marketing and social media marketing. The ideal candidate will have experience developing and executing a digital marketing strategy and content calendar.
The Sickle Cell Adult Support Group of Southern California is the only existing support group in Southern California geared towards adults living with sickle cell disease. Although organizations such as the Sickle Cell Disease Foundation of California exist, these organizations do not serve the unique needs of adult persons with this disease. Come join the only organization dedicated to Sickle Cell Disease of its kind, and make an impact in the lives of members in our local community.
Sickle Cell Disease is a rare disease that affects a population that is both diverse and marginalized. As part of the Sickle Cell Community, Cayenne Wellness Center offer workshops, seminars, and attend several community events to spread the word about Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Sickle hemoglobin forms stiff rods within the red cell, changing it into a crescent, or sickle shape inhibiting oxygen flow to vital organs and causing a myriad of health & pain issues - typically found in individuals of African American descent.
September 9th & 10th, 2016 is one of the largest Sickle Cell Awareness Seminars on the West Coast taking place at Charles R. Drew University.
This role is volunteer-to-start with potential to transition to a paid position within the organization that offers lots of opportunity for growth. We're also looking for dedicated individuals that can help our team spread the word (social media), seek grants, build donor relations, create & solidify agendas, and organize major events in May, July, September, and other ongoing monthly events.
