ACS COT and CNTR Explore New Methodologies to Advance Trauma Research

Monday, July 29, 2019

July 2019 - A Research Methodology conference hosted by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) and the Coalition for National Trauma Research (CNTR) took a step closer toward matching research efforts with the societal burden of traumatic injury—the #1 cause of death from age 1-46 and the #3 cause of death overall in the United States. Yet, traumatic injury ranks last in NIH funding relative to the public health burden of disease.

EAST is proud to be partnering with the ACS-COT and CNTR on these initiatives. EAST Board members Dr. Elliott Haut, Dr. Deborah Stein, Dr. Jason Smith, and Dr. Ben Zarzaur were in attendance.
