News & Announcements

The recent shooting in Parkland, Florida, is a sad reminder that all of us need to have the knowledge and skills to help in an emergency situation. No matter how fast first responders can get there, bystanders will always be first on the scene. Stop the Bleed is a national program designed to train, equip, and empower bystanders to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Learn more about this program at CHE's next Community Conversation, Thursday, April 5, at 2 p.m.
Hear the amazing story of local radio personality Dale Johnson who survived a motorcycle crash because a bystander was there and applied a tourniquet. Presented in collaboration with Bryan Health, this conversation will also include emergency room care providers and a first responder. Get details and register online here: :
