A longtime physician, scientist and advocate for persons with blood disorders, Dr. Kulkarni has contributed to the increased attention, research and treatment of women and girls with blood disorders not only in the United States and in her birth country of India, but also worldwide. Her clinical excellence, as well as her passion for her work, led her to co-found the Foundation for Women & Girls with Blood Disorders with Drs. Andi James and Barbara Konkle.
Ask any of Roshni’s colleagues and friends at FWGBD, MSU, the CDC, or other colleagues at any of the many organizations she has guided and enriched, they will speak to you of her inspiration, strength, collaboration, and insightfulness. However, it is the selfless teaching…teaching….teaching that lead many to regard her as one of a kind and a hero for those with blood disorders.
Please join us in thanking her for her endless contributions to the field of blood disorders that have improved all of our lives.
