Living with Sickle Cell: Advancing Care to Prevent Crisis

You probably learned about red blood cells in a high school science class. But most of us don’t know the impact that they can have on our bodies when we don’t have enough healthy ones. When faced with a shortage of healthy red blood cells, our blood flow can be blocked causing pain, infection and fatigue. This is known as sickle cell disease.

Host: Willard Shepard, Emmy award-winning journalist.
Guests: Neil Miransky, D.O., chief medical officer of Pharmacy Services and operates Sickle Cell Care at Baptist Health South Miami Hospital.
Josiah Frierson, sickle cell patient.
