Gary Gibbons, MD, Director of the NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, joined us for a Zoom conversation about where we stand in the fight against sickle cell disease (SCD). SCD affects over 20 million people worldwide, including nearly 100,000 in the U.S. alone. Progress against this disease has been tragically slow. However, recent advances offer renewed hope. Dr. Gibbons shared his perspective on the path that has brought us here and what the future may bring, against a health threat that heightens health disparities and has for far too long has eluded medical progress.
