Farewell to UMB 2017 Youthworks Students

This year, UMB hosted more than 50 youth workers that who were placed in administrative, research, clinical care and community development roles across the UMB campus. On Thursday July 27th, the Office for Community Engagement brought all youth workers on the UMB campus together at the School of Pharmacy for an ice cream social to thank them for spending their summer with our faculty, staff, students, and neighbors and to wish them the best in their future endeavors.

High School Summer Youthworkers Learn to Stop the Bleed

On Friday July 7, 2017, the current SBIP cohort participated in the Stop the Bleed training, a national awareness campaign to empower the public to employ simple techniques to stop life threatening bleeding and help save a life.

Stop the Bleed was launched in October of 2015 by the White House. The program was led by trauma surgeons Drs. Laura Buchanan and Rosemary Kozar, and Jason Paisley, MD, an Air Force surgeon, from the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

All 2017 SBIP students participated and were certified to “Stop the Bleed” after learning how and demonstrating the application of tourniquets or pressure and filling a wound with gauze. SBIP students mentored by Buchanan and Kozar this year will support development of a PSA on the subject to be offered to students in schools throughout the State of Maryland.
