John Hopkins
Director of the young Adult Clinic- Sickle Cell Center for Adults
Lydia H. Pecker is the Director of the Young Adult Clinic at the Sickle Cell Center for Adults at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Pecker is a Brooklyn native, and trained in the Bronx and Washington D.C. before settling in Baltimore. Dr. Pecker is supported by awards from the American Society of Hematology, the Johns Hopkins Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health program and the National Institutes of Health to study fertility and reproductive intentions in girls and women with sickle cell disease. She hopes this work will help provide more concrete information to girls and women with sickle cell disease as they make consequential reproductive- and treatment-decisions.
