Rural Trauma Ad Hoc Task Force

This Ad Hoc Task Force was approved by the EAST Board of Directors on April 23, 2020. The Ad Hoc Task Force has been established to foster connections between Level I and Level II trauma centers who serve rural trauma patients in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas, promote educational activities focused on rural trauma care, and increase multi-institutional research initiatives. The Ad Hoc Task Force will be responsible for disseminating educational resources focused on the rural Level III/IV trauma surgeon, and to promote further partnerships between these surgeons and the facilities to which they transfer patients.

The Ad Hoc Task Force term is April 23, 2020-April 30, 2022 with eligibility for extension.
