HematologyTweetstory #25: Dr. Walter Clement Noel, the first patient clearly described with what is now known as sickle cell disease (SCD). I published this fascinating & tragic story in 2010 @MayoProceedings following @USPS release of a stamp about SCD./1
mayoclinicproceedings.org/article/S0025-…
Credit is due to Todd L. Savitt, PhD, a medical historian @EastCarolina, who did the legwork flying to Chicago & Grenada in 1987 & identified Dr. Noel from sketchy details in a 1910 case report. He published his findings in a paper in @JAMA_current in 1989./2
In a 2010 paper in #JNMA @NationalMedAssn, Dr. Savitt described just how he tracked Noel's history down. It required both persistence and serendipity. Savitt has published extensively about race and medicine - the intersection of which is clearly part of this story, too. /3

As I was going through the Internet today. I found out that #Barbados has a population of 286,461 people and its area is 431 km².
Its currency is known as Barbados Dollar. 1 Bajan Dollar equals to 1146.60 Tanzanian Shilling.
This is to say 1 Bajan dollar equals 0.50 United States Dollar. A most popular Barbados Dollar exchange rate is the GBP to BBD rate which is 0.40... If I was an investor I would go for this country.
FUNNY THING ABOUT THIS COUNTRY, ON 20 FEBRUARY IS RIHANNA'S BIRTHDAY AND IS ALSO A PUBLIC HOLIDAY.

"When the [slave ship] arrived...thirty nine Negroes, who were totally blind, were thrown into the sea as being quite useless." (1820)
The captain ordered that each was to be tied to a piece of ballast to ensure that they drowned.
Those who benefitted from the slave trade described the effort to abolish it as an endeavour "to oppress the country" (Observer, 20/1/1793)
