Dr. Hsu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hsu "Lewis Hsu is a pediatric hematologist dedicated to finding more cures for sickle cell disease, and improving treatment and education until more cures can be found. During 24 years of experience in leadership of some of the largest sickle cell programs in the country, his immersion in "team science" led to over 70 scientific publications and co-authoring guidelines for pediatric sickle cell care and pulmonary hypertension. First-hand knowledge of the multiple concerns of families living with sickle cell led him to recent initiatives focus on improving patient outcomes and healthcare costs through healthcare delivery improvement, focusing on the adolescent-young adult transition in sickle cell. Working closely with adult hematology and emergency medicine and population health, he is building a comprehensive program for pediatric-adult Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center across the lifespan. He is the sickle cell medical director and trainer for community health workers in the CHECK project under Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Innovation. He works with the PCORI PArTNER program for patient navigators in sickle cell. He volunteers as Vice Chief Medical Officer for the Sickle Cell Disease Assoc of America, and on several educational projects in the American Society of Hematology Sickle Cell Initiative. co-authored the "Hope and Destiny" set of 3 books used in many sickle cell centers for family education in the US and Brazil, 5 sickle cell websites devoted to patient education, and consultation on video games, smartphone apps, and online education to help patients with pain management. He contributed to patient-centered research on risk communication."
