2024 Salt Lake City

Nineteenth International Conference on Shaken Baby Syndrome / Abusive Head Trauma

Little America Hotel, Salt Lake City, UT

September 15, 16, 17, 2024

The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome is pleased to announce our nineteenth biennial conference will be in Salt Lake City on September 15-17, 2024. Nearly 30 years after we hosted our first conference, we will again call Little America Hotel home for 3 days in the gorgeous weather and colors of the Rocky Mountains in the fall. 

We are incredibly excited to host in our home state. The hotel underwent an extensive $30 million renovation during COVID, and the property is amazing. Guests will love the free downtown train zone, walkability of the city, vibrant nightlife with bars and endless dining options. The temperatures in the fall are outstanding and you won’t be disappointed with the colorful mountain views from the downtown streets! The room block is now open! Reserve your room using the link in the Venue section below. Conference registration will open in January 2024. We will host a variety of learning opportunities, focusing on those working in the fields of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, investigation, prosecution, or rehabilitation of victims of shaken baby syndrome/abusive head trauma.
