SCHAF Engages the NYSC as a Vehicle for Awareness on Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle Cell Hope Alive Foundation – SCHAF demonstrates its penchant for accessing rural dwellers. A maiden engagement of Oyo State NYSC members of Ibadan North Local Government on the 10th of September, 2015.

A lecture titled: “Know Your Genotype: Youth Corpers as a Vehicle of SCD Prevention in Nigeria” was delivered by SCHAF President- Professor A.G. Falusi.

Over 150 Corp members were treated to the educational outing involving their knowledge assessment through a pre and post- questionnaire.

The take home message is that Corp members must know their Blood Genotype, differentiate it from their Blood Group, make informed decisions as appropriate in the future as well as carry this message to the nooks and crannies of Nigeria where  they are posted.
