THE SOUTHWEST’S LEADING TRAUMA CONFERENCE

WELCOME FROM THE PROGRAM CHAIRMAN

Trauma affects EVERYONE. It is the leading cause of years of life lost, exceeding cancer and heart disease combined. Medical advancements and public health efforts have made an impact on this challenging problem, but injuries still remain the greatest silent epidemic of modern society. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary for our conference.  Its longevity and continued success is a reflection of your investment in advancing your care of the injured patient, and our commitment to delivering the best educational program possible. Our goal is to provide the most current information on trauma and its management to all healthcare professionals working to combat this major health problem. Morning general sessions and afternoon concurrent breakout sessions are offered each day.
This conference has been organized under the leadership of the Division of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery at the Banner-University Medical Center and the University of Arizona College of Medicine.
