Cook County Health Stop the Bleed Training Held at Cook County Health Professional Building, Chicago

May is Stop the Bleed Month. Stop the Bleed is a national campaign to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

On Friday April 26, 2019, Cook County Health hosted a one-hour Stop the Bleed training program that is designed to prepare participants to assist injured people following a traumatic event, such as a severe laceration.

Participants were able to practice with simulator limbs with tourniquet wrapping, and also practiced limited tourniquet wrapping on other participants.

The training was held at the Cook County Health Professional Building, 1950 W. Polk Street in Chicago.
