The application forms for the Karttik Shah Youth Fellowship which will allow a youth or two to go the WFH 2014 World Congress in Melbourne are now available via the CHS web site at :

The CHS Karttik Shah Youth Fellowship was initiated in memory of Karttik Shah of Toronto, Ontario, in recognition of his commitment to hemophilia youth programming and, in particular, for his participation over many years on the CHS Board of Directors and the WFH Youth Committee. In order to promote the development of future leaders in the Society, the CHS will offer one or two fellowships to enable Canadian youth who are committed to long-term involvement with the CHS to attend the 2014 Hemophilia World Congress taking place in Melbourne, Australia, May 11 – 15, 2014. The fellowship programme is open to Canadian youths between the ages of 18 and 30 affected with hemophilia, other rare factor deficiencies, Von Willebrand disease, and carriers.

Interested youth should complete the application form and forward it, along with the relevant documentation to the CHS by 5 PM November 8, 2013.  Please follow the above link or contact the CHS-MC office for the application form.
