Julie Hendry Memorial Scholarship Award (non-patient volunteer)

Julie Paton Hendry, daughter of PHA founding members Pat and Jerry Paton, was the first full-time, non-patient PHA volunteer. Every two years, she looked forward to the PHA Conference as an opportunity to meet the PH patients and families she talked with by telephone and email. Sadly, Julie passed away in 1998. Her family established the Julie Hendry Memorial Scholarship Award in her memory to help a non-patient volunteer attend Conference. This award is self-nominated and applicants can be extended family, friends and supporters who help to further PHA's mission. Professionals employed in the care of PH patients are not eligible to apply.
