By learning and using the basic techniques of bleeding control until professional help arrives, you may save a life. Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign developed to encourage the general public to take an active role in the event of life-threatening emergencies. Rob Curran, New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center Trauma Program injury prevention and outreach coordinator, will discuss the call-to-action known as "stop the bleed", teach a brief class concerning the subject and provide a demonstration. Class participants will have a chance to practice what they have learned by correctly applying a tourniquet and receive a certificate of completion. Learn how to save a life by taking simple actions immediately after trauma.
