Stop the Bleed

Bleeding Emergency? Quick Action Can Save a Life

UMC has been a pioneer in injury prevention and lifesaving techniques. Part of this effort is our commitment to the Department of Homeland Security "Stop the Bleed" Campaign. Launched in October 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.    

The Stop the Bleed program at UMC is a joint venture with Spirit of Charity Foundation, LSU Health New Orleans and the Tulane University School of Medicine.

Classes are free and open to the public. Times for all classes are 11am – 12pm.
