Stop the Bleed
National Initiative Brings Important Safety Lessons for Kids of all Ages
For the little kids, there was simple guidance: "Is the bleeding bigger than a Band-Aid?" If so, it's time to use some techniques taught Thursday at MPH throughout the day to students of all ages. The younger kids learned wound packing and wrapping from Nurse Christine Civello in the gym, along with additional lessons in wrapping, packing a first aid kit, and knowing when to call 911 from the Core Health team at the School. In the Phoenix, the older kids learned more-advanced techniques, including using a tourniquet and dressing a wound.

Repertory Dance Concert Offers Variety
MPH preview | Wednesday May 18 at 4 p.m.
Opening night | Thursday May 19 at 7 p.m.
Saturday May 21 | 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets are free and no reservations are required.
The Repertory Dance Concert focuses on introducing dancers to historic choreographers and important movement works from around the world. Dancers learn movements reconstructed from video and have the chance to step into
many different styles for an immersive learning experience. By spending a semester on these pieces, students learn a number of new dance vocabularies in depth. These hands-on experiences with movement outside of what they know lead to a broader global and historical understanding of the important role movement
plays in community and expression, and builds technical versatility, too. 
In the 2022 Dance Rep Concert, you’ll see dancers of all experience levels and backgrounds come together to perform seminal works from the past and present.

From cultural dance that has been around for centuries, to an American social dance style born out of the Harlem Renaissance; through the strange and visceral performance art era of the 1970s, all the way to smash hit choreography in the early 2000s and contemporary works touring internationally today, prepare to join us on a vibrant, joyous journey through time and space.
Senior Publishes Aspiring Vets Guidebook
Eden Hildebrandt recently published the handbook A Guidebook for Aspiring Veterinarians as a part of her Senior Capstone Project while doing career internship research at a local veterinary hospital. The guidebook aims to help high school and undergraduate students decide if they want to pursue becoming a veterinarian and understand the veterinary school application process.

The handbook is available on Amazon, and all proceeds will be donated to the Humane Association of CNY. Eden has a history with the shelter, having organized a Holiday Supply Drive with fellow senior Matthew Roberson.
