Dear Fellow EAST Members,
As Giving Tuesday draws to a close, we would like to thank you again for all that you do to care for critically ill and injured patients while supporting our mission of developing the next generation of trauma surgeons through your membership and donations.
Despite the challenges of the last few years, many of you have continued to devote your time as mentors while getting involved in developing practice management guidelines, writing literature reviews, participating in multicenter trials, and volunteering across a host of other EAST initiatives. You have also helped raise more than $135,000 to date this year for the EAST Development Fund, allowing us to continue to invest in scholarships, awards, and programs to support the future leaders of your profession. We thank you for your commitment to EAST and to your peers!
This Giving Tuesday, we decided to give back to you by gifting 20 randomly selected members with EAST Hawaiian print socks as small tokens of our appreciation. The lucky recipients are listed below. Please know that although your name may not have been drawn, we are grateful for all that you do to care for patients everywhere and for your continued support of our mission.
We also invite you to join today's ongoing EAST Member Chat on Twitter where we're asking you to let us know how you plan to give back to your profession throughout the course of your careers. Let us know and encourage your peers to join the discussion as well!
We wish you the best this holiday season and look forward to seeing you at the 36th EAST Annual Scientific Assembly in Lake Buena Vista, Florida!
Happy Giving Tuesday,
The EAST Development Committee
