Screening and Trait Resources

Though carriers of the sickle cell trait do not have the same symptoms as those with sickle cell disease, it is important for individuals to know their status and how it can impact them and their families. Individuals often become aware of their status through community health fairs or during pregnancy, when screening for sickle cell disease and general education are offered. This group of resources can be used by providers to educate patients about sickle cell disease, sickle cell trait and screening.
