Sickle Cell Testing for Athletes

NYS has been testing all newborns for sickle cell disease (a disease of abnormal hemoglobin in the blood) and sickle cell trait since 1975. If your child has been a patient of Elmwood since birth, we will have those results. College athletes need to provide these results to their school. You can also request the results from NYS (or the state you were born in), or we can order a lab test. Please see: and click on “requesting results for NCAA requirements”
