Tiffany Lin, MD
University of California, San Francisco
San Francisco, CA
Dr. Lin will receive up to $10,000 to fund her work on her approved project, which will develop an interactive case to teach fellows and advanced care practitioners who will work with hemophilia patients. The case’s learning objectives will include diagnosis of neonatal bleeding, principles of prophylactic factor therapy, and diagnosis and treatment of inhibitor development.
Lin shared that the project will provide a shareable curricular element to pediatric hematology/oncology programs and hemophilia treatment centers for training regarding basics of diagnosis, treatment, and complications of pediatric hemophilia care. It can be used nationally and beyond as it will be developed in conjunction with World Hemophilia Foundation guidelines.
She will receive her award at the 2018 ASPHO Conference, May 2-5, 2018, in Pittsburgh, PA.
