CODERouge; When Women Bleed Too Much



CODEROUGE is a program developed by the Canadian Hemophilia Society and supported by each Chapter. The program is specifically targeted at health care providers and women in the general public. The goal of CODEROUGE is to identify undiagnosed women with bleeding disorders and ensure that they have access to appropriate medical care from health care providers with expertise in bleeding disorders and the specific issues that relate to women.

CODEROUGE Amabassador

CHS-MC is pleased to have two CODEROUGE Ambassadors whose job it is to raise awareness and educate our Hemophilia Treatment Center and related health care providers, women and the general public about the importance of identifying undiagnosed women with bleeding disorders. CODEROUGE ambassadors will play a critical role in ensuring there is a strong awareness about the symptoms of bleeding disorders, how to access appropriate medical care, and where to obtain information and support. CODEROUGE ambassadors will represent the CHS, integrity and compassion in an effort to make a difference in the lives of affected women.

My name is Milena Pirnat, MD.,MSc. I am Hemophilia A carrier and I am founder of Hemophilia Mother Facebook page and blog that supports women with bleeding disorders. I am Chair of the Education Committee at CHS-Manitoba Chapter, a MyGirlsBlood Ambassador, and a CODEROUGE Ambassador. In my spare time, I love to make jewelry or to knit. You may always find me having coffee at the Grove.
