Hemophilia of Indiana Judy Moore Memorial Scholarship Program
Judy Moore joined the Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center as a social worker in 1999. She first entered the hemophilia care arena in 1990 through employment at Hemophilia of Indiana. Judy’s experience serving the hemophilia community spanned the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the transition to recombinant clotting factor concentrates, and most recently, healthcare reform. Judy was in inspiration to all – patients, families, friends, and coworkers. She leaves a proud legacy of care, having touched many lives during her thirteen years at the IHTC and her prior years serving the bleeding disorder community.

Hemophilia of Indiana Ed Magoni Memorial Scholarship
Ed Magoni was a patient of the IHTC for 28 years. He was originally diagnosed with severe Hemophilia A in Dayton, Ohio, on his first birthday, despite having no family history. Ed was treated in Pennsylvania and New York before moving to Indiana where Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Greist and their staffs became integral parts of Ed’s care and well-being. Ed always knew he could rely on their experience and medical expertise.
Like many living with a bleeding disorder, Ed face many challenges and he met them head on. For example, his dream of becoming a professional football player was redirected to a career in sports journalism. Ed made many lasting friendships with fellow journalists as well as coaches and athletes. One of Ed’s proudest accomplishments was his work with young, aspiring journalists and many of his interns have gone on to have successful carriers.
In the same spirit, Ed would be proud to encourage and support young people living with Hemophilia today. For this reason, his family has established the Ed Magoni Memorial Scholarship.
