STOP THE BLEED AND FAMILY EMERGENCY READINESS
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
6PM - 7:30PM
Sky Ridge Medical Center
Children are capable of so many wonderful things, especially if we give them the right education. While it’s concerning to have to teach children how to treat significant bleeding, this type of education gives children the confidence to provide help in an emergency. Taught by Injury Prevention Expert, Alyssa Ralls, this workshop helps parents and children recognize and respond to emergencies in the home and provide an additional reassurance that if something should happen, the family is equipped to handle it.

Children and adolescents are now increasingly at risk for a heart condition that has always been tied to aging. While heredity still accounts for one-fifth of all high blood pressure cases in kids under 18, the remainder of heart issues emerging in children are “adult-style” hypertension issues, caused by a convergence of biological and environmental factors. Dr. Amy Barley will teach parents and children risk factors and how to prevent this situation from happening in children and adults.
