Sickle Cell: A Man’s Perspective

Sickle Cell: A Man’s Perspective

A Man’s Perspective: A night of insightful, educational and enlightening discussions about issues surrounding sickle cell disorder in a laid back environment.
As November is men’s mental health awareness month, the Sickle Cell Society’s Hackney Engagement Project, Hackney Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Centre and Hackney CVS have teamed up to deliver the event; Sickle Cell: A Man’s Perspective.

We’ll be recreating the barbershop environment at Hackney Central Space for a laid back setting that makes room for meaning and fruitful discussions to take place amongst men in the local community.

It’s an opportunity for men with and without sickle cell to talk about the condition, the difficulties patients and families face and the social/cultural misconceptions surrounding the disorder.

Topics on the night include: social effects of sickle cell, managing relationships and family, education, employment and finances and much more!
