Dr. Jennifer Freeman

Recipient of the EAST GRADE Workshop Scholarship


As an EAST GRADE Workshop Scholarship Recipient, I was able to take a deeper dive into GRADE methodology and discuss the finer points of guideline development with the actual creators of the process. In addition, I was able to develop amazing networking connections with these experts (and other EAST members) who have already helped answer very complicated follow-up questions.

As the leader of the Trauma Taskforce for the Guidelines Committee, it is critical for me to be able to answer methodology questions from my work groups and make sure that we are propagating the amazing tradition of developing impactful guidelines. The workshop was an amazing experience that I would whole-heartedly recommend to anyone developing guidelines. Thank you, EAST!
