BDB hosts at Willesden New Testament Church of God

On Saturday 19th May 2018, the Breaking Down Barriers Project worked closely with Willesden New Testament Church of God and Emma Gedeon the Community Paediatric Specialist Haemoglobinopathy Nurse/Genetic Nurse Counsellor at Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust, on their annual health day in order to raise awareness around Sickle Cell.

We provided members of the congregation with information on sickle cell, the screening process, and the new adult care standards we have recently released.

Working with Emma was a pleasure as her knowledge was really helpful when members of the congregation had specific medical queries.

Although we left some resources behind for those who couldn’t make it, if you require more information please use the links below for access to all our resources;
