HOSA is active at K-Tech! Students have adopted an initiative to help K-Tech. This initiative is called “Stop the Bleed”. It is HOSA’s intention to educate our K-Tech community about how to stop hemorrhagic bleeding and supply bleeding control kits around campus. “Stop the Bleed” continues to empower the general public to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching them the basic techniques of bleeding control.” (BleedingControl.org)

Here is a link showing how Stop the Bleed is being used in sports stadiums.
