Longhorn Stop the Bleed launched in 2017 in response to the tragic stabbing of four students on The University of Texas at Austin campus. The initiative’s founder — a UT Austin undergraduate and participant in Dell Med’s Health Leadership Apprentice program at the time — saw a need to provide the community with a simple, effective way to learn about saving a life from a serious bleeding injury.

Death from bleeding can happen in under five minutes but can often be prevented with simple methods, so trained bystanders are a critical part of saving lives. Since October 2017, Longhorn Stop the Bleed has trained more than 3,500 members of the Longhorn and Travis County communities.

Stop the Bleed is a national initiative launched by the American College of Surgeons, a professional association tasked with advancing surgical care, education and advocacy. Stop the Bleed represents the best, most up-to-date standards of bleeding injury care presented in a way that is accessible and easy to understand. A Stop the Bleed class takes about an hour, is hands-on and requires no background knowledge.

Anyone can learn, from children to seniors. To learn more or request a free class, email the team.
