Dr. Andra H. James Awarded HTRS Lifetime Achievement Award

"FWGBD is very pleased to report that our founding President, Dr. Andra H. James (Andi), has been awarded the HTRS (Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Society) Lifetime Achievement Award, at their 2017 Scientific Symposium on April 8, 2017.

Andi is an Ob/Gyn with a singular grasp of benign hematology. Her understanding of, and concern about bleeding and clotting disorders in women was informed and enhanced by her Fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Duke, where she spent three years in the laboratory of Dr. Russell Ware; her Ob/Gyn residency at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, incubator of advances in knowledge about hemophilia and hemostasis; by her graduate training in Public Health at Johns Hopkins; and by having been a nurse-midwife at the start of her career."
