NHF Announces PRF Scholarship Recipients

The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2009 Project Red Flag (PRF) Academic Scholarships for Women with Bleeding Disorders: Callie Clark and Juanita Fish.

Clark, from Toledo, Ohio, will be attending Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She plans to complete her undergraduate studies before applying to medical school. She has been a volunteer at Camp Bold Eagle, run by her local chapter, the Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan.

Fish is from Detroit, Michigan, where she attends Wayne County Community College. She is pursuing studies to become a registered nurse. For the past 10 years she has volunteered with the Parents Empowering Parents (PEP) program at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and has received several awards for her work. Fish is a member of the Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan.

The PRF scholarships are given to women with such bleeding disorders as hemophilia, von Willebrand disease or another clotting factor deficiency or who are carriers, and are pursuing post high school education. Each award is $2,500. They were inspired by the generosity of Josephine Droney and Lindsey Hanson.
