The Queen’s Medical Center works diligently with community partners to provide educational resources to benefit the people of Hawaii. This includes wellness initiatives, educational talks, support groups, chronic disease management, health screenings and sponsorship of health-related nonprofit organizations.
In collaboration with The Department of Health Neurotrauma Supports, Queen’s Injury Prevention and outreach team travels throughout the community to provide free helmets. We teach adults and keiki how to properly fit helmets, while giving them educational resources. Our goal is to emphasize the importance of wearing helmets. We take requests to teach educational classes and have helmet fittings at schools and events.
To schedule a class or helmet fitting, please fill out Queen’s Community Event Request form.

The Stop the Bleed campaign is an initiative developed by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the National Security Council Staff and The White House. The purpose of the program is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives, and raise awareness of basic actions to stop life-threatening bleeding in the event of emergencies or man-made and natural disasters.
This workshop is led by The Queen’s Medical Center’s Injury Prevention and outreach team. The class empowers attendees and teaches them proper techniques for bleeding control. For example, those participating in class will learn how to apply dressings and tourniquets using their hands. The workshop is in a lecture format and includes hands-on demonstrations.
Join us to help Stop the Bleed. Save a Life.
