June 21, 2010 (Cincinnati, Ohio)   BioRx, a specialty pharmacy, and Hemophilia of North Carolina, a non-profit organization that assists and educates persons affected by bleeding disorders, announce the winners of the 2010 BioRx Educational Scholarships.  Each of the winners receives a $2,000 scholarship.  The scholarships are funded by BioRx through an educational grant, which is administered by Hemophilia of NC, a chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation. 

 The recipients of the 2010 BioRx Educational Scholarship Awards are:
