In conjunction with FENDI, and in recognition of Women’s History Month, the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) has honored UConn Health’s Genice Nelson, APRN, as one of several women nationally who have made a significant impact in the Sickle Cell Disease community. Genice and the other women have gone above and beyond the call of duty in hopes of making a difference in the sickle cell patient community, and their efforts have not gone unnoticed. To show their appreciation, SCDAA has named the honorees the 2015 Iconic Women. The women will each receive a commemorative award from the SCDAA, as well as national recognition throughout the month of March.
Please visit SCDAA’s official Iconic Women website and make a contribution to SCDAA in honor of Genice’s work in Sickle Cell Disease by clicking on “Connecticut” and following the link by her picture. Be sure to include Genice’s name in the message box on the donation page so our local Connecticut SCDAA chapter can receive a portion of the donation.
