This week, Werner H. Kirsten student interns Emme Tissue and Esteban Garcia are launching a training course that could mean the difference between life and death. The duo will teach a class on halting uncontrolled bleeding in individuals who have experienced traumatic injuries such as gunshot wounds or major lacerations. The course is part of the official Stop the Bleed Program, an international initiative that seeks to reduce the number of deaths from traumatic bleeding by training civilians to provide on-site care to the injured. All NCI at Frederick and Frederick National Laboratory employees are eligible to enroll—no prior training required.
