Who is Eric Delson?
The Eric Delson Memorial Scholarship was established in 1993 in honor of Eric Delson, former Vice President of Marketing and Clinical Services. As a person with hemophilia, Eric did not allow challenges to deter him from any goals he set out to achieve. Although limitations were well-known to Eric, these same limitations were the fuel that drove him to enhance the lives of others who were living with hemophilia. Through his example of leadership, commitment, determination and compassion, Eric’s positive influence touched many who had the privilege of knowing him and others who did not.
