Pop Up Sickle Cell Clinic for Adults

Great News! The New Adult Sickle Cell Pop UP Clinic in Columbus, GA is Going to resume by the first of the year. In 2021 we will have the Sickle Cell Mobile Unit here in Columbus, GA. There will be a Hematologist Dr. Anthony Onyegbula here twice a month from Stockbridge, GA. All adult SC patients in the area are invited to come in and register for services in each facility. Family Practice and Internal Medicine physician services will also be available during the monthly clinic by Dr. Otis Powell of Atlanta.  The new clinic is possible through partnership with the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, the main funder of the project. Featured to the right are the Executive Leaders who started this project. From left to right we Mrs. Deb McGee
