Stop the Bleed
The top cause of preventable death in trauma is bleeding. 20% of people who have died from traumatic injuries could have survived with quick bleeding control.
National Stop The Bleed Day brings Bleeding Control (B-CON) Instructors and students together for a day of training. Free of charge.
University of Missouri Health Systems will be having a FREE training open to the public to raise awareness for hemorrhage (bleeding) control. This is a national movement originating from the White House after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook in 2012. This training will teach bystanders how to help in an emergency situation while waiting for help to arrive.
