AST headquarters will be closed Monday, January 21, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr Day. We will reopen at 8 am MT Tuesday, January 22.
Fifty years ago a new professional organization was created and a new profession was born. Surgical technologists have come a long way since then and AST has been with you every step of the way. In 2019, we celebrate our golden anniversary and hope you'll join us for a celebration worthy of 50 years in the making.
