sickle cell volunteers and staff
NBCI continues to secure multitudes of volunteers to ensure that everyone who is living with sickle cell and their families are protected.

In fact, NBCI Vows to Raise 25,000 Volunteers and Volunteer Sickle Cell Educator Trainers so our churches and congregation will have a dedicated Health Corps Volunteer to provide education, resources and support to those who have Sickle Cell Disease.
