Sickle Cell Awareness Month

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
Sickle Cell

Sickle cell disease is a group of inherited red blood cells disorders. People that suffer with sickle cell disease have an abnormal protein in their red blood cells. In the United States, most people who have sickle cell disease are of African ancestry, but the condition is also common in people with a Hispanic and Mediterranean background. Because the disease runs in families, couples planning to have children can have genetic testing.

Celebrating Black History Month

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
Black History Month

History is often reduced to a handful of memorable moments and events.  In Black history, those events often include courageous stories like those of The Underground Railroad and historic moments like the famous “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. But these are only a few of the significant and important events to know and remember.
