Military Committee

The Military Committee recognizes the mutual benefit of military-civilian collaboration in trauma education, training, and research as well as the outlet that EAST provides for enhancing these relationships.  The Military Committee is responsible for creating a network among EAST members who are active military or retired from active duty.  The committee is responsible for developing educational content for the Annual Scientific Assembly that focus on the issues facing the EAST members serving in the military.

Committee members are appointed by the President with approval by the Board of Directors.  Committee member terms are three years. All terms begin in January and conclude in January in the year specified in "term ends".
