The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services created a state action plan for sickle cell in 2015 that is being used as a model plan by the federal Health Resources & Services Administration.
This webinar will introduce Michigan’s “Public Health Strategic Plan to Address Sickle Cell Disease Across the Lifespan.”
The webinar will focus particularly on lessons learned from creating and implementing the plan since 2015. It will also focus on the role of the key governmental stakeholders and their interaction with clinical and community based partners.
Presenters are Dr. Wanda Whitten-Shurney and Ms. Dominic Smith, who were both involved in writing the Michigan plan.

Dominic Smith, MSA, is the Hemoglobinopathy Program Coordinator at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. She works in the Lifecourse Epidemiology & Genomics Division.
