Sickle Cell Disease Resources
The IHTC is involved a variety of research studies to better understand the complications of sickle cell disease. It is our hope that this research will allow the medical community at large to develop treatments to prevent or minimize complications, prolong and improve the quality of life for those with sickle cell disease.
If you are interested in participating in a research study, please let a member of our healthcare team know.

The IHTC created this video to explain the importance of a 504 plan for children with sickle cell disease. A 504 plan provides accommodations for children with a disability or chronic illnesses like sickle cell disease to ensure academic success. This video features interviews with the IHTC’s sickle cell program and education coordinators, the parent of a child with sickle cell disease and a school educator.
IHTC staff are available to assist sickle cell patients in establishing a 504 Plan. For sickle cell families and schools throughout the state, the IHTC can provide 504 plan resources for your use in the development of a 504 plan. For more information please call 317-871-0000.
