Education

Health Fairs

The OUCHA Education Chair is responsible for coordinating health fairs at various elementary schools in the OKCPS system. Each health fair includes booths on three topics: Nutrition, Exercise, and Smoking Cessation. Fifteen medical student volunteers participate at each event, ranging between 1.5-3 hours. There are 7-8 health fairs hosted each semester.

Once a medical student has attended two health fairs, they are eligible to become a health fair leader. This entails emailing all the volunteers prior to the event with their script assignments, and keeping track of time allotments during the fair. The health fair leader will receive an additional education hour (on top of those offered to volunteers) for their time.

To sign up for a health fair, please keep a look out for emails from Katie Gerth, which will be sent to all MS1 and MS2 students. If you have any questions, please contact Katelyn-Gerth@ouhsc.edu

Stop The Bleed Training Workshops

Stop the Bleed

What is itSTOP the Bleed (STB) is an initiative that was started be the American College of Surgeons in response to the many preventable deaths that occur in mass casualty events. This program’s goal is to empower every day citizens with the knowledge necessary to address a bleeding crisis until first responders arrive. Our very own Trauma Department is giving workshops throughout the state.

How is OUCHA participating? We are helping the OU Trauma One team at trainings that are open to the public around the state. Additionally, we are networking with OKCPS high schools in order to facilitate a workshop to Seniors in the metro area. You will get one education hour for every training you co-instruct.

How Can I get involved?

1.Email the OUCHA STB Contact to be placed on a standby list for future trainings.

2.Attend a training and register to become a co-instructor.

3.Once you are a registered co-instructor you will receive invitations to participate at STB trainings.
