This month Sasha and Mavis enjoyed hearing about the story of Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia. The event was introduced by Prof Dame Elizabeth Anionwu the first sickle cell specialist nurse in the UK. It was an enlightening afternoon spent reflecting on the experience of the Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia community and what that could teach us all about improving inclusion in genetics.
