    • Stop The BleedStop the Bleed. In the United States, it takes an average of seven minutes for emergency medical personnel to respond to a 911 call. To help trauma patients receive care more quickly, the U.S. government’s “Stop the Bleed” campaign educates the general public about the basics of bleeding control and empowers them to intervene in life-threatening emergencies. Led by Stepping Strong innovator Eric Goralnick, MD, MS, and with funding from the center, Goralnick’s team has trained more than 3,000 people in hemorrhage control.
