The Canadian Hemophilia Society - Baxalta Inherited Bleeding Disorders Fellowship Program for Nurses and Allied Health Care Professionals was created to engage hemophilia program professionals/graduate students from the disciplines of nursing, physiotherapy, social work and other related allied health disciplines in research focused on improving services and quality of life for people and families whose lives are affected by bleeding disorders.
The fellowship was made possible thanks to the generous financial support from Baxalta. Baxalta Canada Corporation, now part of Shire, was a global biopharmaceutical leader advancing innovative therapies in hematology, immunology and oncology. The CHS is proud to have been be in a partnership with Baxalta in order to offer this important fellowship program.
In 2016, the program was replaced with the Canadian Hemophilia Society - Shire Fellowship.
