Approaches to Effective Therapeutic Management of Pain for People with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD)

Date: July 21, 2021 to July 22, 2021

Location: Virtual, Registration is required

Event Description

This trans–National Institutes of Health (NIH) workshop will focus on sickle cell disease pain. Researchers will explore critical gaps and research challenges as well as brainstorm potential solutions for this grossly understudied pain condition in a highly underserved population. This fits into the NIH mission of seeking fundamental knowledge to enhance health.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute are leading the meeting planning for this workshop. Collaboration partners at NIH include the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and National Institute of Nursing Research. 

The draft agenda will be added to the registration site later in June.


Wednesday, July 21; 11:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
Thursday, July 22; 11:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
