Message from the Chair


 To All Previous and Future Conference Attendees, 

On behalf of the 2020 Southwest Regional Trauma Conference Planning Committee, we would first like to thank you for your continued support of our annual conference. For the past several months we have stayed in close communication with local and national public health experts to stay informed on guidelines and recommendations regarding this pandemic. 

After much discussion we have decided to cancel the 2020 conference. 

Although we are very disappointed, there is not enough information to determine how to safely hold a conference of our size. We feel that this is the responsible thing to do for our community and attendees. 

We believe this extra time will allow us to safely prepare for the 2021 conference. We are excited to see you at next year’s conference at the JW Marriot Star Pass Resort & Spa on June 24-25, 2021. Please let us know if you have any questions. 

Stay safe and healthy thank you for all you do for this community.
