Initiated in 2015 by the White House, “Stop the Bleed” is a national campaign designed to raise awareness about what you can do to stop life-threatening bleeding in the event of an everyday emergency or a man-made or natural disaster before professional help can arrive. 

Attend this free, one-hour class during National Stop the Bleed Month and learn the basic techniques of bleeding control. The course, led by Kathi Ayers, trauma program manager, will include short PowerPoint presentation as well as hands-on practice with applying tourniquets and stopping blood loss until the injured can reach a hospital.

Members of the public as well as health care providers are welcome to attend.

Three different sessions will be offered on Wednesday, May 15 at Sharp Coronado Hospital, Sandermann Education Center, Soledad Room, 265 Soledad Place. Three free, hour-long sessions will be offered from 10 to 11 a.m., 11 a.m. to noon, and noon to 1 p.m.
