Georgia Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center To Celebrate Its 20th Anniversary
The Georgia Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center at Grady Memorial Hospital will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Saturday, Nov. 20, at the Emory Conference Center and Hotel, located at 1615 Clifton Rd. The non-profit group Sickle Cell Empowerment for a Liberated Life (S.C.E.L.L.) is sponsoring the event, which will feature remarks by Sickle Cell Center director James Eckman, MD, professor of hematology and oncology and medicine at the Emory University School of Medicine.

Andrew Agwunobi, MD, CEO of the Grady Health System, will provide the welcoming address. The celebration also includes a keynote address; dedication of the sickle cell eye clinic; awards presentation; live music; and entertainment by Decatur City Dance.

Tickets to the black tie celebration are $50 per person, and can be purchased by calling (404) 616-5984, or online at www.hwgf.org. All proceeds will benefit patient care needs and the Sickle Cell Eye Clinic.

The Sickle Cell Center at Grady is the largest combined adult and pediatric multidisciplinary sickle cell clinic, actively following over 1,300 patients. It is also the world's first and only dedicated 24-hour acute care treatment clinic for sickle cell disease.
