NHF Award Nominations

The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to announce the 2013 Annual Meeting Awards of Distinction in Programs and Awards of Excellence.

The Awards of Distinction recognize chapters with outstanding programs in health education, outreach, communications, and collaboration. Each chapter receiving an award will be given a $1,000 incentive to enhance their program. All programs must be chapter based.

The Awards of Excellence recognize remarkable and distinguished individuals in the bleeding disorders community. All Awards of Excellent winners will be filmed by nominators. The short films (2-3 minutes) will be presented at the Awards Ceremony, Saturday, October 5, 2013. NHF staff will provide guidance and help with the filming.
