It takes less than 5 minutes for a person to bleed to death. Bleeding emergencies happen every day, caused by car crashes, accidents at work, home and school — and increasingly, mass violence. Stop the Bleed
training prepares you to make a difference when help is needed most.
WHO: The event is free and open to the public.
WHEN: 6 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 13.
WHERE: UPMC St. Margaret, Conference Centers A, B and C, 815 Freeport Rd., Pittsburgh, 15215.
