Healthcare continues to evolve as we progress in our academic and professional journeys; however, we must take the time to reflect on how far science and technology have advanced to appreciate its evolution. On Friday, February 28, 2020, at noon, Dr. Wanda Whitten-Shurney, one of the pioneers of patient care in the City of Detroit, will share her journey as a Pediatric Hematologist. She will also share her history with the Wayne State University School of Medicine and how she advocates for her patients inside and outside the clinic. In addition to working as a Pediatric Hematologist, Dr. Whitten-Shurney coordinates and oversees multiple organizations that support the Michigan population with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), including the SCD Association of America. We hope to see you there.
