International Frank Schnabel Volunteer Award
The International Frank Schnabel Award was established in 2004, and is named in honour of WFH founder Frank Schnabel. It is given to an individual with a bleeding disorder or a family member of an individual with a bleeding disorder who has contributed to furthering the mission and goals of the WFH over a number of years through their leadership and actions, not only in their country of origin but in service of the broader community.
International Healthcare Volunteer Award
Established in 2004, this award honours a healthcare professional who has contributed significantly to furthering the mission and goals of the WFH in a volunteer role. Candidates for this award include all members of the multidisciplinary care team, including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, social workers, dentists, and other health professionals.
The President’s Award
