About Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patients Network’s #1ViralVoice
#1ViralVoice is a new & social media campaign created by DistinctiveImpression MMG (home of DIRadioCast.com)
Sickle Cell Thalassemia Patients Network (SCTPN) was incorporated in 1993 as a volunteer, not-for-profit organization by its founding members (adults living with sickle cell disease, thalassemia and other hemoglobin disorders) to serve the larger community by providing a face and a voice for these underrepresented health issues.
