Ladan Eshkevari PhD, CRNA, FAAN
John F. Garde Researcher of the Year 2014

As a CRNA researcher, being recognized by one’s peers is the ultimate validation of one’s body of work, and this award is the culmination of such recognition. The Foundation has been instrumental in supporting my research activities since I began conducting research while working on my doctoral dissertation. At every phase of my research, from novice to experienced, the Foundation has provided funding confirming its commitment to advancing the science of nurse anesthesia. I am proud to be a CRNA scientist, and am now even more proud to be recognized by the AANA Foundation.
