The Hilda Fleming Fund was developed in 1980 by Margaret Fleming to honour her sister, Hilda Fleming, and is intended to financially assist medical laboratory professionals participating in continuing education. 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
