Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Event Postponed

As part of a global healthcare organization, we believe we have a responsibility to contribute to global efforts to contain and minimize the spread of COVID-19, as well as protect our associates and yours. With this in mind, we have made the decision to postpone the Securos University – Austin wet labs, originally scheduled for April 18-19, 2020.  At this time, we are working to reschedule this event and will post the most up-to-date information on this page as plans develop. 
 
We recognize that this travel disruption will come as disappointing news, and again want to reiterate that we are working to postpone, not cancel, as we place a high importance on bringing together this valued group of practitioners that have made a continued commitment to Securos University. 
 
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. Thank you for your understanding and support!
