World Sickle Cell Day X Juneteenth


The World Sickle Cell Awareness Day is officially observed and recognized by the United Nations on June 19th every year. The goal of this international awareness day is observed annually to increase the public knowledge and comprehension of the disease and the obstacles patients of the disease have to experience, along with their family and caregivers . . .
