Hilda Fleming Fund

Manitoba Association for Medical Laboratory Science Educational Fund Requests Guidelines

Margaret Fleming established the Hilda Fleming Fund in 1980 to honour her sister Hilda Fleming (1903-1978).

Hilda Fleming started her laboratory career at Winnipeg Children’s Hospital in 1925. During the late 1920s Hilda was employed at New York’s Flushing Hospital Laboratory. In 1939 Hilda returned to Winnipeg where she was employed at Trainor Laboratories until her retirement in 1968. Hilda was an active technologist throughout her career and was a founding member of the Manitoba Branch of the CSLT.

The Hilda Fleming Fund was created to assist graduate medical laboratory technologists. Awards are available for any continuing education that advances knowledge or skills of the medical laboratory profession.
