The National Hemophilia Foundation is now accepting nominations for its Awards of Excellence. These awards honor members of the bleeding disorders community who have made outstanding contributions to improving the lives of people with bleeding disorders through treatment and care, advocacy, and raising awareness.

The awards honor healthcare providers in five categories: Physician of the Year, Nurse of the Year, Physical Therapist of the Year, Social Worker of the Year, and Genetic Counselor of the Year. Non-provider hemophilia treatment center staff are honored with the Mary M. Gooley Humanitarian of the Year Award. Investigators who have made significant contributions to improving treatment and care for people with bleeding disorders are recognized by the Researcher of the Year Award.

The awards also honor the many volunteers, community advocates and chatper leaders and board members who work to raise awareness and advocate for access to care for people with bleeding disorders with the Ryan White Youth Award, the Loras Goeken Outstanding Leadership Award, Chapter Volunteer of the Year, and Advocate of the Year.

Nominations will be accepted until April 16th. The winners will be announced at NHF's 2021 Bleeding Disorders Conference on August 28th, 2021.
