June 19, Juneteenth, is also World Sickle Cell Awareness Day. I am honored to sponsor a senate resolution, SR332, recognizing this day in PA and helping to shine a light on one of the world’s foremost genetic diseases. Locally, the South Central PA Sickle Cell Council works to increase awareness, build support networks, raise critical resources, and strengthen our community’s collective resolve to advocate for access to sickle cell services and a cure for sickle cell disease, and they have several events today you may want to check out. The PA Capitol will be lighted red tonight in recognition of Sickle Cell Awareness Day.
