During the pandemic, much of our collective attention has been focused on COVID-19. But people continue to face a wide range of health challenges. One of those has been the experience of sickle cell disease, a disease that affects many people and their families and yet which hasn’t always received widespread attention. On this episode, we bring together not only a researcher who can tell us about the experience of sickle cell disease but also two people whose lives have been directly touched by the condition.
