Community Health Workers and Mobile Health for Emerging Adults Transitioning Sickle Cell Disease Care

About the study

This study will compare the effectiveness of two self-management support interventions-Community Health Workers (CHW) and mobile health (mHealth)-versus enhanced usual care to improve health-related quality of life and acute care use for transitioning youth with sickle cell disease (SCD), and identify and quantify mediators and moderators of intervention treatment effects.
