Education

Class Registration

Star Valley Medical Center classes and events are offered to help you stay well and to provide you with the education and support you need to make informed decisions about your health.  Many of the classes are offered at the hospital and are free to the public. Our staff is also very active in local health fairs and community events.  Because we value early detection and prevention, we provide free screenings such as blood sugar and blood pressure at multiple events throughout the year.

EMT-Basic Classes                             Watch for upcoming opportunities!

'Stop the Bleed' Class                 Watch for upcoming opportunites!

No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene.  A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss.  With this in mind, SVMC will offer 'Stop the Bleed" classes that teach bleeding control basics.  Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action - those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.  This program is intended to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.  Please contact Colleen David  at cdavid@svmcwy.org or for more information on class availability.
