For audio conference call 888-989-7591 and Participant Code 3551924#

The 'Stop the Bleed' campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the National Security Council Staff and launched by the White House in October 2015. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives through raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters. Advances made by military medicine and research in hemorrhage control during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have informed the work of this initiative which exemplifies translation of knowledge back to the homeland to the benefit of the general public.
