2020 Southwest Trauma & Acute Care Symposium (STACS)

  • COVID-19  remains an ongoing concern with an uncertain impact on future travel. After much consideration for the safety of our attendees, speakers, and event staff, the Arizona Trauma Association (ATA) leadership has made the decision to cancel the 12th Annual Southwest Trauma and Acute Care Symposium (STACS) for 2020. This includes the cancellation of the Advanced Practice Provider course.
    STACS has always provided incredible speakers from the nation along with great opportunities to meet your peers in the trauma and acute care surgery community. We remain excited about the future and the return of STACS in 2021 at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa with confirmed dates of October 7 – 8, 2021.
    Joseph Sucher, MD, FACS
    President, Arizona Trauma Association

What Attendees Say About the Symposium

  • This was the best trauma conference I have been to. As a nurse, much of the information could be used in everyday nursing practice and good ‘nuggets’ for those unique cases ~S.F. from Angelton, TX
  • Each lecture was brief with a limited and pointed topic and this format really held my interest…all presented some key concepts or even a lot of generally useful information. ~L.S. from Memphis, TN
