Tell Students: 'Stop the Bleed' Training with ECMC - September 14, November 30

Weigel Health Promotions is pleased to offer “Stop the Bleed,” a free 60-minute class facilitated by ECMC that teaches students how to recognize serious bleeding and ways to control it, such as applying direct pressure, packing wounds, or using a tourniquet.

Two identical sessions will be offered, both in Weigel Wellness Center 203:

  • Tuesday, September 14, at 10:00 a.m.
  • Tuesday, November 30, at 12:15 p.m.

All students will have the hands-on opportunity to practice bleeding-control skills and will be issued a course completion certificate at the end of the class.

A death from uncontrolled bleeding may be a death that can be prevented. Most cases of serious bleeding are due to common accidents in and around the home, at work, or from motor vehicle crashes. A victim can bleed to death much faster than trained emergency medical personnel can arrive to treat them. A person near the injured individual may be the only one who can make the difference between life and death.

Help our Trauma Team save lives by scheduling your Stop the Bleed course today.

Space is limited. RSVP online.

Please contact Paula Madrigal, assistant director of prevention and health promotions, with questions.
