January volunteer of the month
EHA, as a non-profit association, deals with different kinds of volunteers to push programs forward. These volunteers range from board members to committee members, case writers, external reviewers. Altogether they work for ‘the good cause’ by sharing knowledge, learn from each other, new relationships and collaborations. All aimed at lifting hematology to the next level. In the Volunteer of the month we put a volunteer in the spotlights with an interview. This month we kick-off with Fabienne Lucas, member of the YoungEHA Committee.
