Cayenne Wellness Center’s 24 hours/7 days a week Hotline (1-888-344-1356)
Cayenne Wellness Center’s SCD Hotline was created in response to COVID-19 and Sickle Cell Disease. Persons living with Sickle Cell Disease are considered one of the vulnerable populations, at higher risk for COVID-19. In addition, those who go in for lab tests, blood transfusion, infusion, port flushing, or other needed procedures, may need advice on how to proceed. Recommendations have been created for COVID-19 Preparedness from SCDAA Medical and Research Advisory Committee. Click here to get a copy.
