What We Do

MSCDA seeks to work collaboratively with patients, families, healthcare providers, federal and state agencies and other community based organizations to promote advocacy, education, research and excellent healthcare delivery.

We Train

Public School Nurses Training Programs
MSCDA can provide you with a Clinical Pediatric Nurse to hold in-services for Howard County Public School Nurses and help Nursing Assistants educate themselves on how to identify the symptoms exhibited by patients affected with sickle cell disease.
Public School Administrators & Educators Training Programs
This service trains school administrators and their staff on the importance of sickle cell awareness and gives them creative tactics that can be used to educate their students and others. Information is also given in these sessions on how to cope with a student or family with sickle cell disease and the importance of screening.

We Support

Patient Support Groups
MSCDA holds monthly support discussion groups on the 4th Thursday of every month for sickle cell disease patients and caregivers. If you would like to attend, please click here to contact us.

We work with SCD providers in our area to identify individuals and/or families affected by SCD who need emergency financial assistance. If you are in need of emergency financial assistance, please talk with your social worker or call us at 410-465-4822 and leave a message. Our ability to provide emergency financial assistance is based on our available budget.
