Dr. McGann On The Road To Caring For Sickle Cell Patients
In this video, I am joined by Dr. Patrick McGann from Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Dr. McGann is an academic pediatric hematologist who does research focusing on improving outcomes for children with sickle cell anemia, both in the United States and across the globe.
Dr. McGann's work globally has included time living in Angola to lead the Angola Sickle Cell Initiative, which implemented the country’s first newborn screening program for sickle cell anemia. He is also actively involved in global hematology and global child health through such organizations as the Global Sickle Cell Disease Network, the Central African Sickle Cell Network (REDAC), the American Society of Hematology, and the AAP's Section on International Child Health (SOICH).
Answering questions about hematology, care, and research
We discuss interests in a career in hematology, different career paths that allow you to care for sickle cell patients, the broad spectrum of care options, disparities in care, current burdens for sickle cell patients, and the future of research and care.
