School Dedicated to GuideStar® Board Member, John Elstrott

Deerfield, IL – John Elstrott, a member of GuideStar® Clinical Trials Management’s Board of Directors, was recently honored with the dedication of the John B. Elstrott Elementary School in Dayakaur, Rajasthan, in recognition of his contributions to education and overall life of people in India. Through his position as a board member of Traditional Medicinals, maker of herbal medicinal teas and dietary supplements, Dr. Elstrott championed building three schools in the country suffering from poor educational opportunities.

The development of these schools is part of an overall investment by Traditional Medicinals in several villages in the Rajasthan area that are important to the company’s herbal supply chain. The investment is focused on training and education, community organization and leadership, and the empowerment and health of women.

“We are very proud to have one of our board members honored for making such a positive impact on humanity,” says Kristin Hutchins, CEO of GuideStar. “Dr. Elstrott brings so many dimensions of leadership to GuideStar, as well as other companies that have benefitted from his guidance. He certainly deserves this recognition.”
