Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc.
Northwest Louisiana Chapter


The foundation was founded in 1974 by Mrs Wallette and was incourporated with the state of Louisiana in 1975. Very little was iknown about this hereditary Blood disorder in the United States of Louisiana at that time, so commuinity education became the Foundation's first priority. Other objectives were added as the Foundation's needs and resources were identified and developed. To reflect the total scope of this chapter's activities, the name was changed in 1994 to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc., Northwest Louisiana Chapter (SCDAA NWLA Chapter).
