The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) has to say goodbye to a long-time member of our family. Elizabeth Myles, COO, has decided to move on to new adventures, leaving her post behind at the end of October.
In 1998, Elizabeth joined the WFH as its Publications and Information Officer. In the time that she has been with the WFH, she has been to eight WFH World Congresses, countless international events, and a seemingly endless amount of meetings, but by far the thing that she remembers most are the people she has met along the way.
“I have been very privileged to be a part of this organization and this community. I am very proud of the contributions I have made and the work of the WFH, but what I will remember most are the people. The WFH staff over the years, the board and volunteers, the NMO leaders, the doctors, the people with bleeding disorders; I have been inspired by their commitment,” said Elizabeth, “and they have given me the memories of that I will continue to cherish for years to come.”
During her seventeen years with the WFH, the organization has grown by leaps and bounds, not just the internal operations but with the amount of programs dedicated to helping the bleeding disorders community.
On behalf of the entire bleeding disorders community, the WFH extends its deepest thanks to Elizabeth and wishes her the best of luck in the future.
