About this Product

Various entities came together to create a strategy for communicating the importance of sickle cell trait testing for Black and African American children.

The project made the following suggestions for creating easy-to-read booklets about sickle cell trait and disease:

  • Information about the sickle cell trait is new for the target audience
  • Information about a complex topic must be given in a short time
  • Materials should be appealing, relevant, and understandable
