After a successful week of videos in July I have put them all together in one post for you to view.
There is such an event called “World Sickle Cell Day” which falls in mid-June every year.
For me who had two brothers and one sister (Victor Agbetey, Jerry Tei and Sussie Konotey-Ahulu) with hereditary cold-season rheumatism or hemikom as this has always been known in my Krobo Tribe in Ghana as the name for Sickle Cell Disease – one day in a year is not enough attention given to a very important problem.
Professor Konotey-Ahulu explains the reasons behind the Sicklecell Disease Patient Week and a bit about his history.
Professor Konotey-Ahulu interviews an achiever of over 50 years old.
Professor Konotey-Ahulu talks about the various African tribes which have various names for the Sicklecell disease. He also explains the difference between trait and the disease.
Professor Konotey-Ahulu gives a round up of the videos published and a bit more history on what he found during his career.
Professor Konotey-Ahulu continues to talk to an achiever on how he stopped the disease from taking over his life and reduced crises periods.
Professor Konotey-Ahulu explains his dice (KANAD) and how it can help explain how people get the disease.
An achiever Akosua M Dankwa talks about the Sicklecell Disease and how it has affected her life.
