Support Ruppersberger's bill to expand violence prevention program at Shock Trauma

Dr. Thomas Scalea, physician in chief of the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, discusses the Stop The Bleed campaign and give brief instructions on how to stop bleeding. State lawmakers and other government employees participated in Stop the Bleed training to learn how to save a life by learning bleeding control skills from members of the American College of Surgeons-Maryland State Committee on Trauma Tuesday in the Miller Senate Office Building.

Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger’s commentary describing the new Maryland Shock Trauma program of violence intervention, along with his bill to widen the program, offer hope and deserve our support.(“Md. congressman drafts violence prevention program bill because 'even small actions are better than thoughts and prayers,'” Nov. 15.) Rep. Ruppersberger terms this step a “small action” and suggests “small actions are better than thoughts and prayers.” Might I suggest that actions, both large and small, are often the result of thoughts and heartfelt prayers.
