  • 5 people are interested

Voices of Winged Warriors is taking off! And we're looking for committed, informed, passionate, courageous individuals to help guide VoWW's growth and evolution as it strives to keep sickle cell warriors alive through better treatment, care, policies, and practices. We're actively seeking members for our Board of Directors and Advisory Council (both at-large). If you're interested in applying, directions follow below. Committees will be filled at a later date.

We serve the following communities:

  • Individuals with sickle cell

  • Caregivers of individuals with sickle cell (living and Winged)

  • Medical professionals who care for and treat individuals with sickle cell

  • Health-adjacent professionals (social workers, educators, pharmacists, insurers, etc.) who provide services to individuals with sickle cell

  • Scientists, researchers, pharmaceutical companies that develop treatments for individuals with sickle cell

  • Media and those who have the power and ability to promote our cause

  • The public at-large

Mission Statement

Voices of Winged Warriors (VoWW) unites the advocacy of caregivers and allies who have lost loved ones to sickle cell disease. VoWW aims to radically improve emergency care, mitigate ongoing SCD complications through better healthcare access and maintenance treatment, educate medical associations, shift policy and legislation through advocacy, and create and impact other changes that transform the landscape of living with sickle cell. We vow to help individuals with sickle cell live life to the fullest.

Description

VoWW is committed to creating change through our critical Points of Action: Emergency Care; Knowledge, Equity, & Accountability; Advocacy; Education & Economic Empowerment; and Healing & Support (stands alone and weaves through each pillar).

Our primary focus is currently on emergency care through the Sickle Cell STAT emergency department initiative. STAT supports the work of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the American Society of Hematology (ASH) to help save lives. Through STAT, we also use online surveys to gather patient feedback on emergency treatment and maintenance care. www.sicklecellstat.org
