As news about COVID-19 dominates media and public safety discussions at state and federal levels, we want you to know that since we are still two months away, we have no plans right now to cancel AST’s 51st Surgical Technology Conference occurring May 28-30, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Your safety is our top priority, however, and we recognize this as an extremely important and evolving situation. We will continue to monitor developments and base any decisions we make concerning our annual conference on the advice of health and safety experts. In addition, we are waiving all cancellation fees for our attendee registrants, and in the case the event is canceled, all attendee registrations will be refunded completely.

As an organization of healthcare professionals, AST recognizes the value that our members place on the importance of infection prevention practices not just when traveling, but every day. We will continue to provide updates. 

Holly Falcon, CST, FAST
AST President
