Nationwide Children's sponsors an annual Flu Clinic in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Health Vaccine for Kids program. In the past year our program has added an after-school Hydroxyurea Clinic, which allows children with sickle cell anemia to be monitored regularly for therapeutic and adverse affects of medication. We also serve as one of the study sites for the NIH Silent Infarct Transfusion Trial.
