Recipient of the 2018 EAST Multicenter Trial Junior Investigator Award


As a recipient of the EAST Multicenter Trial Junior Investigator Award, I believe in the value of paying it forward to EAST because of its mission: advancing science, fostering careers, and building relationships. EAST’s investment in young trauma surgeons helps to springboard their career through mentorship and support of their academic pursuits.  The return on the investment is exponential; the research performed by recipients of EAST funding improves the care of the injured patient while they blossom into the next generation of trauma leaders.  What other investment can you make with such a guaranteed return?
