Mission Statement

The Sickle Cell Disease Association of Illinois’ (SCDAI) primary mission is to enhance the quality of life for people with sickle cell disease and their families...

To effectively achieve this goal, SCDAI acts as an advocate for improved health care and services for sickle cell patients by educating and informing the community through outreach programs.

Description

The Sickle Cell Disease Association of Illinois was founded as the Midwest Association for Sickle Cell Anemia in 1971 by concerned physicians, researchers, business and community people committed to improving the lives of those suffering from sickle cell disease. We provide an organized voice for sickle cell patients in Illinois. The Sickle Cell Disease Association of Illinois remains committed to improving the lives of those with one of the sickle cell diseases.

Over the years SCDAI has energetically sought to provide program services - including community education, patient referrals, genetic counseling, research grants, college scholarships and various responses to patients’ needs.
