Industry Think Group

Participate in a private industry informational meeting with 6-10 EAST leaders and experts in virtual format. EAST will coordinate the invitation of EAST leaders and experts to discuss topics of your choosing such as R&D, avenues for marketing and penetration, discussion about why a particular technology is not being adopted, etc. – all from the surgeon’s perspective. Your team asks the question. EAST members help you answer it.  This is an excellent opportunity to gain access to leaders in trauma that represent a diverse group of practicing surgeons including those who do and do not use your product.
