WFH Board of Directors: Welcoming new and thanking outgoing members

On July 29, 2016, the Annual Meeting of the WFH General Assembly was held in in Orlando, Florida, and WFH national member organizations cast their votes for the 2016-2018 Board of Directors and the position of WFH president. Each candidate during this election had a unique skill set to offer—but what was most inspiring was that every candidate brought the same commitment to the WFH and the same willingness to volunteer in the name of Treatment for All.

Alain Weill was re-elected for a second term as WFH President. Voting also saw Deon York, Magdy El Ekiaby and Glenn Pierce re-elected. The newest WFH board members are Carlos Safadi of Argentina and Predrag Mikov of Serbia.

The WFH would like to thank all outgoing members of the board for their commitment to our organization and the bleeding disorders community. Their dedication and efforts contributed to many of our organization’s recent achievements, including a very successful WFH 2016 World Congress inOrlando this past July.

To new members, we—and the bleeding disorders community—say welcome and thankyou. Our board members and the WFH staff look forward to collaborating with you as we continue to serve the bleeding disorders community—and begin ramping up for our next Congress in Glasgow in 2018.
