Upcoming Events

Join SCAA Support Group Meetings


Self Advocacy is the ability to articulate one's needs & make informed decisions about the support necessary to meet those needs.

In January 2020 SCAASF will launch the Advocacy and Empowerment Program (AEP) with sessions once a month at the South Beach Harbor Community room located 3 blocks from AT&T Ballpark in San Francisco. 


The program is comprised of two primary activities. The first part consists of 3 intensive workshops held once a month designed to introduce clients to the purpose of the year-long program, present core educational content on SCD, and explore self-advocacy.  The second part is the implementation of the educational content learned, with journaling and role playing along with discussions pertaining to their real world experiences. We are in need of 30 patients/clients.

·       Refreshments will be served at all sessions


·         $50 Gift Card & Health and Wellness bag at the end of the program


·         Transportation Assistance available


·         Contact NeDina Brocks-Capla --

This program was supported via a grant from Global Blood Therapeutics, Inc.,
