A Deeper Look at Organ Damage in SCD
Learn more about how organ damage occurs in sickle cell disease (SCD) and how vaso-occlusion and vaso-occlusive crises (VOCs) contribute. This unique whiteboard video explains the underlying complications that may not always be seen in SCD.
What Drives VOCs in SCD?
SCD goes beyond red blood cells and, early on, progresses to a chronic vascular disease. Watch a unique whiteboard video to learn more about the pathophysiology of SCD.

Resources for Your Patients
Generation S is a movement to raise awareness of SCD and to provide your patients with information. A variety of resources and hundreds of patient stories are available on www.JoinGenS.com
Generation S Brochure
People with sickle cell disease can visit Generation S to learn more about SCD and to help shape the conversation about the disease for generations to come.
Sickle Cell Disease HCP Locator
A tool, based on location, to help you find hematologists who treat patients with SCD. This tool may also be helpful when your patients transition from pediatric to adult care.

Transition Brochure for Your Patients
The Generation S Patient Transition Brochure is intended for adolescents (aged 12-18) and their parents to help in the transition from pediatric health care to adult health care. This brochure includes important information for patients on how to take charge of their health care, increase their understanding of how they may be impacted by sickle cell disease as they get older, and how to navigate the more complex adult care environment.
