Community Conversation Series

Join the chat! This series of free online chats will empower you to openly discuss topics that affect underserved people and their communities and raise awareness about how important diverse donations are to saving lives.

Ask Me Anything Series

Versiti experts, community leaders and sickle cell patients have joined together to answer questions about the need for ethnically diverse blood donors, what is the rare “Ro” blood type and how it impacts patients with sickle cell disease, and how you can help save lives in your community.

Register for 2022 A Seat At The Table

You’re invited to have “A Seat at the Table” to listen to community viewpoints and learn more about healthcare disparities faced by African Americans. Previous community-focused panel discussions were sparked by a series of relevant, thought-provoking films: “Spilled Milk,” “A Question of Faith” and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.” The three films brought awareness to sickle cell disease, organ donation, and other healthcare topics.
