Show notes:

On Episode 15, Dr. Z and Dr. C welcome Dr. Patrick McGann, an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital (one of the best sickle cell centers in the country, maybe even the world)! Dr. McGann always knew he wanted to be a Pediatrician when he was growing up in Boston, but little did he know at that young age where that dream would take him. He talks about how his path led him towards his love for Sickle Cell and speaks on the work he's done in Angola and how differently the disease affects communities outside of the United States.

Dr. C, Dr. Z and Dr. McGann also discuss the positive effects of Hydroxyurea in the Sickle Cell Community, the small portion of patients who have experienced negative side effects from this therapy, and how this medication is used in patients with Sickle Cell.
