Dr. Margaret Telfer has a long interest in coagulation disorders. Since 1971, she has directed a Hemophilia Care Center at Michael Reese Hospital, and in 1999 she was recruited by Rush University and Cook County Hospital to link their Hemophilia Care for adults and to join their existing Thrombosis Centers. From 1974 to 1990 she was Chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee of the Hemophilia Foundation of Illinois, and she continues to serve as a member of the Committee. She is a member of the Governor's Hemophilia Advisory Committee of the State of Illinois Department of Public Aid and participated in the original design and passage by the State Legislature of the statutory requirements for this program. Her publications concern the care of persons with bleeding disorders.
