The Uniformed Services University, America’s medical school, needs help informing African American Sickle Cell Trait carriers about a genomics study. We seek to discover genes associated with an increased risk of exertional events in SCT carriers.

Participation is accomplished remotely with no follow-up. African American SCT carriers aged 18 and older can call 240-479-9514 or email SCTStudy-ggg@usuhs.edu for screening, fill out a few forms, and make a single visit to any LabCorp for a small blood draw. The study pays shipping and lab expenses and participants receive a $25 gift card upon completion.
