During the last 18 months, SsAM members and others have met, emailed, shared a Zoom call, or worked together on a project related to the Congregational Health Network for patients and families managing sickle cell disease at Nemours Children’s Health in Wilmington, Delaware.

2023-06-04 — SsAM has joined the Community Health Network organized by the Reverend Pam Weikart to support children and their families struggling with sickle cell disease.
The first three families of this program have started this week with food from our parish. We expect this will expand once the kinks are worked out as there are many children and families who are struggling with food insecurity.
“The Lutheran Family Services Food Farmacy is able to provide healthy appropriate food to help battle the ravages of sickle cell disease. We will also be starting a mentoring program but that’s still in the works. I’m sure in the future we are going to need more volunteers and I so appreciate the people who have stepped up at this time,” says Dr. Charles Bean.
2023-06-02 — The SsAM team of fo0d coaches has been trained and will begin working with their families.
Providing Healthy Food for Patients and families Managing Sickle Cell Disease is a collaboration between SsAM, the Food Farmacy at Lutheran Community Services, and the Congregational Health Network at Nemours Children’s Health.
