App LogoKathy Mulder and JoAnn Nilson have won a Connected to the Community award from the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association for their work creating the app HIRT?

There will be an award reception in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba to honour Kathy and JoAnn. When we have the final details, we will share them.

The Connected to the Community Awards are an opportunity for the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association to pay tribute to outstanding organizations in recognition of their partnerships with Canada’s wireless industry. The awards program promotes and celebrates the use of wireless technologies in improving the lives of Canadians. The program has focused on numerous partnerships with community projects – ranging from organ transplants to emergency access programs – as well as educational and R&D initiatives ranging from mentoring programs to major funding for ground-breaking research by some of Canada’s top researchers.

The HIRT? app is a self-assessment tool available for free download on iTunes and for android  devices! This app was developed to help people with mild hemophilia to assess, monitor and make good choices about when to seek medical help with bleeding episodes.

Congratulations to Winnipeg physiotherapist, Kathy Mulder and to Saskatoon physiotherapist, JoAnn Nilson.
